Robert Sheckley (1928-2005) was a science fiction writer whose humourous short stories first appeared in 1951. His work is notable for its mind boggling originality and genuinely unexpected plot twists. He was a major influence on Douglas Adams.
Robert Sheckley died on Friday the 9th of December, 2005. He was 77. Obituary.

NEWS: Some of Sheckley's best work is finally back in print in the volumes "Dimensions of Sheckley" and "Masque of Manana" (novels and short stories respectively).

    This site includes lists Sheckley's novels and short stories. I have also reviewed most of the novels and short story anthologies. These reviews are intended to help people find his best work. Despite the welcome release of "Dimensions of Sheckley" and "Masque of Manana", much of his work remains out of print. Second hand copies are fairly easy to find, and a good place to look is the Advanced Book Exchange.

    Did I mention he was funny?
