"Silverberg was born in Brooklyn, New York. [6] A voracious reader since childhood, he began submitting stories to science fiction magazines during his early teenage years. He received a BA in English Literature from Columbia University, in 1956. While at Columbia, he wrote the juvenile novel Revolt on Alpha C (1955) , published by Thomas Y. Crowell with the cover notice: "A gripping story of outer space". [1] He won his first Hugo in 1956 as the "best new writer".

He used his own name as well as a range of pseudonyms during this era, and often worked in collaboration with Randall Garrett, who was a neighbour at the time. (The Silverberg/Garrett collaborations also used a variety of pseudonyms, the best-known being Robert Randall. ). ". Fine in Fine dust jacket .
