Happy Birthday, Clifford

It was today in 1904, in Millville, Wisconsin, that Clifford Simak was born. A practicing journalist for most of his life - in Minneapolis - he also wrote brilliant and award-winning science fiction, earning three Hugos and a Nebula and being named a Grand Master (a title given to a living author for lifetime achievement in science fiction and/or fantasy). His best known novel (sort of) is probably City, which is very good, but my favorite - one of my all-time favorite novels by anyone, for that matter - is the wonderful Way Station.
