    Editor John W. Campbell rejected his first sci-fi story, The Lovers, saying it nauseated him. It later won Farmer his first Hugo award.

    He had to work full-time for most of his adult life.

    Between his novels and short stories collections, he has had over 100 books published!
    He has won three Hugo Awards in three different categories: Most Promising New Talent, Best Novella, and Best Novel.
