about author

"Clifford A. Pickover received his Ph.D. from Yale University and is the author of over 30 books on such topics as computers and creativity, art, mathematics, black holes, religion, human behavior and intelligence, time travel, alien life, and science fiction.

Pickover is a prolific inventor with dozens of patents, is the associate editor for several journals, the author of colorful puzzle calendars, and puzzle contributor to magazines geared to children and adults.

WIRED magazine writes, ""Bucky Fuller thought big, Arthur C. Clarke thinks big, but Cliff Pickover outdoes them both."" According to The Los Angeles Times, ""Pickover has published nearly a book a year in which he stretches the limits of computers, art and thought.""
The Christian Science Monitor writes, ""Pickover inspires a new generation of da Vincis to build unknown flying machines and create new Mona Lisas."" Pickover's computer graphics have been featured on the cover of many popular magazines and on TV shows."
