Biography and writing career

Fandom origins

Since the time he was a teenager, White has been a prolific contributor to science fiction fanzines, and in 1968 he won the Hugo Award for Best Fan Writer. His skill as a writer for fanzines is evident in "The Bet", an evocative memoir of a tense day in 1960 when a dispute over a record owned by music critic Linda Solomon prompted Harlan Ellison to bet his entire record collection against a single record in White's collection. Despite his considerable professional credits, White maintains that his achievements in fandom mean more to him than anything else he has done. Void, published in the early 1960s, is only one of the fanzines edited by White over decades. He was also co-chairman of the 1967 World Science Fiction Convention in New York.
