Barrington Bayley was a twentieth century novelist and short story author specializing in science fiction. He wrote books such as The Pillars of Eternity and Star winds, among others. He was not quite as prolific as some of the authors featured on this site, but I still feel he deserves recognition for his work. There are few photos of him on the internet of good quality, hence the lack of a portrait for this author. He died in 2008.
