VJ Books Presents Author Ben Bova!

Ben BovaBestselling author Dr. Ben Bova was born in Philadelphia and received his doctorate in education in 1996 from California Coast University, a Master of Arts degree in communications from the State University of New York at Albany and a bachelor's degree in journalism from Temple University. He has taught science fiction at Harvard University and at the Hayden Planetarium in New York City.

He has written more than 120 futuristic novels and nonfiction books, and has been involved in science and high technology since the very beginnings of the space age. He has been President Emeritus of the National Space Society and a past president of Science Fiction Writers of America. He was editorial director of Omni magazine and editor of Analog magazine.

His Grand Tour novels, such as MOONRISE, MARS, and TITAN combine romance, adventure, and the highest degree of scientific accuracy to show how the human race will expand through the solar system, and the impact this will have on individual human lives and society as a whole. His nonfiction books, such as FAINT ECHOES, DISTANT STARS and IMMORTALITY, have been honored by the American Librarians Association and others.

In his various writings, Dr. Bova has predicted the Space Race of the 1960s, solar power satellites, the discovery of organic chemicals in interstellar space, virtual reality, human cloning, the Strategic Defense Initiative (Star Wars), the discovery of life on Mars, stem cell therapy, the discovery of ice on the Moon, electronic book publishing and zero-gravity sex.

He lectures regularly on topics dealing with the prospects for human immortality, the interaction of science and politics, space exploration and development, the craft of writing, and the search for extraterrestrial life. He has worked with film makers and television producers such as Woody Allen, George Lucas, and Gene Roddenberry.

Dr. Bova was manager of marketing for Avco Everett Research Laboratory, in Massachusetts, and worked with leading scientists in fields such as high-power lasers, artificial hearts, and plasma dynamics. Prior to that he wrote scripts for teaching films with the Physical Sciences Study Committee in association with Nobel laureates from many universities. Earlier, he was technical editor on Project Vanguard, the first American artificial satellite program.

A member of the Arizona Astronomy Board, Dr. Bova was earlier on the Steering Committee for the NASA/Space Transportation Association study on space tourism. He has served on panels of the Office of Technology Assessment. He is a member of the Board of Governors of the National Space Society, a charter member of the Planetary Society, and a Fellow of the British Interplanetary Society. Temple University honored him as a Distinguished Alumnus in 1981, and in 1982 made him an Alumni Fellow..
