Honored as Author Emeritus by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America in 1999, Klass was born in London, raised in New York City, and began to sell his science fiction short stories in 1946. The Science Fiction Encyclopedia called him “one of the genre’s very few genuinely comic, genuinely incisive writers of short fiction.”
