“The shark swam out to his deepest waters and brooded in the old clean currents. He was very hungry that season”
A Canticle for Leibowitz
By Walter M. Miller, Jr
Walter M. Miller, Jr. was a respected and prolific author whose career as a published author was confined for the most part to the 1950s. Despite the comparative brevity for his career, he won two Hugo awards in that time, one for “The Darfsteller” and one for the only novel he ever published while alive, A Canticle For Leibowitz. If modern audiences know Miller at all, it’s usually for this novel.
