Michael Bishop

Michael Lawson Bishop (* 12. November 1945 in Lincoln, Nebraska) ist ein US-amerikanischer Autor, der in erster Linie Science-Fiction-Literatur schreibt. Er besitzt einen Master-Abschluss in Englisch der University of Georgia und unterrichtete an verschiedenen Schulen und Universitäten.

Bishop veröffentlichte 1970 seine erste Kurzgeschichte Piñon Fall, sein erster Roman (A Funeral for the Eyes of Fire) folgte 1975. Zahlreiche Erzählungen und Romane Bishops wurden für diverse Science-Fiction-Preise nominiert. Ausgezeichnet wurde er viermal mit dem Locus Award und zweimal mit dem Nebula Award, 1981 für die Erzählung The Quickening und 1982 für den Roman "Nur die Zeit zum Feind (No Enemy But Time). In diesem Roman, der sein bekanntestes Werk ist, geht es um die Zeitreise zur Wiege der Menschheit ins pleistozäne Afrika. Der Roman besticht durch seine Charakterzeichnungen und komplexen Aufbau und verzichtet auf einen technischen Erklärungsversuch der Zeitreise.

Sein Sohn, Christopher James Bishop, gestaltete mehrere Umschlagsbilder der Bücher seines Vaters. Er starb am 16. April 2007 beim Amoklauf an der Virginia Tech in Blacksburg. Er war dort als IT-Berater und Deutschlehrer tätig.[1]
