Arthur Byron Cover is a science fiction author. Cover attended the Clarion Writer's SF Workshop in New Orleans in 1971, and made his first professional short-story sale to Harlan Ellison's The Last Dangerous Visions. Cover's short stories have appeared in Infinity Five, Alternities, The Alien Condition, Weird Heroes #6, The Year's Best Horror #4 and #5, Wild Cards #5: Down & Dirty, and Pulphouse. He's also written several comic books — most notably two issues of Daredevil, and Space Clusters, a graphic novel from DC Comics illustrated by Alex Nino — plus several animation scripts, and reviews and articles for such august publications as The New York Review of Science Fiction. Cover's first novel, Autumn Angels, was the second of Harlan Ellison's Discovery Series of new authors for Pyramid Books, and was nominated for a Nebula Award. The novel has been described as "a stylistic cross-breed of Ellison and Vonnegut, and as such both predates and bests Douglas Adams in creating a comic, literary fantasy." Cover currently manages the "Dangerous Visions" science fiction book sales website.
