Mark Clifton Wins the 2010 Cordwainer Smith Rediscovery Award
The Rediscovery Award is chosen each year by a panel of judges who know a great deal about science fiction, and
about who deserves to be rediscovered.
This year's award went to Mark Clifton (1906-1963). Regular readers of Analog back in the 1950s may remember
him, but otherwise he is indeed little known.
He won a Hugo Award in 1954 for his novel They'd Rather Be Right, an award that was
controversial at the time.

what's in print at Amazon.
And here is the Wikipedia article about him.
A thoughtful review of the volume of his
best short stories will help you get the flavor of his work.
