    (January 23, 1923-January 9, 1996)
    Born in New Smyrna Beach, Florida
    Science fiction author, most well known for 'A Canticle for Leibowitz'
    Two time winner of the Hugo Award, once for 'Darfsteller' and once for 'A Canticle for Leibowitz'
    WWII veteran
    During WWII, his Army Air Corp unit bombed the monastery at Monte Cassino. This attack, later to be shown to have been unnecessary, inspired Miller to write 'A Canticle for Leibowitz.'
    'A Canticle for Leibowitz' was his only novel and the last work he ever finished.
    He spent the last decades of his life as a recluse, eventually committing suicide.
    Nothing he wrote has ever been filmed.
    He was married to the same woman for over fifty years!
    Although known primarily for his only novel, he wrote numerous science fiction short stories as well.
    Although it received only lukewarm reviews when it was first published, 'A Canticle for Leibowitz' is today considered one of the finest, if not the finest, science fiction novels ever written.
    'A Canticle for Leibowitz' has never been out of print since it was first published and has been a staple on high school reading lists where it has remained remarkably popular among young readers.
