|Hal Clement is the writing name of longtime science teacher Harry Clement Stubbs - made his first sale in 1942 to Astounding, and became one of the mainstays of that magazine throughout the 50's and 60's, with much of his best short work appearing there. Clement's most famous novel is Mission of Gravity, which in retrospect still holds up as one of the best SF books of the 50's. His other books include the novels Star Light, Needle, Close to Critical, Iceworld, Ocean on Top, and The Nitrogen Fix. In 1999, Clement was given the prestigious Grandmaster Award by the Science Fiction Writers of America.|
