    His first novel was published in 1970, his second in 1980. Similarly his first collection of short stories appeared in 1965 and his second in 1991.
    His biography on his website is a bizarre collection of stream of consciousness thought and interviews that have appeared elsewhere.

    He goes back and redoes his books when they are re-issued.
    He's published over forty books with international sales in the millions.
    He created the term 'virtual reality.'
    His work is among the most literate and imaginative in science fiction history with particular emphasis on the future evolution of human beings.
