H. Beam Piper

Data de nascimento: 23. Março 1904
Data de falecimento: 4. Novembro 1964

Henry Beam Piper foi um escritor estadunidense de ficção científica. Ele foi o autor de muitos contos e vários romances, dentre os quais, a longa série de história futura dos Terro-Humanos e os contos da série "Paratime" de história alternativa são os mais conhecidos.

Ele escrevia sob o nome de H. Beam Piper, sendo que o significado do "H" e a data de sua morte variam de acordo com a fonte. Para alguns, a inicial seria de "Horace" e não de "Henry" . O próprio Piper pode ter contribuído para essa confusão, ao declarar que o "H" realmente era de "Horace", o que dá a entender que ele não gostava do próprio nome.

Citações H. Beam Piper

„Everything has to be at once for six-month-old puppies, six-year-old children, and reformers of any age.“

—  H. Beam Piper

A Slave is a Slave (1962)
Contexto: Oh, he won't think of it in those terms. He'll be preventing me from sabotaging the Emancipation. He doesn't want to wait three generations; he wants to free them at once. Everything has to be at once for six-month-old puppies, six-year-old children, and reformers of any age.

„Only the incompetent wait until the last extremity to use force, and by then, it is usually too late to use anything, even prayer.“

—  H. Beam Piper

A Slave is a Slave (1962)
Contexto: Count Erskyll said nothing for a moment. He was opposed to the use of force. Force, he believed, was the last resort of incompetence; he had said so frequently enough since this operation had begun. Of course, he was absolutely right, though not in the way he meant. Only the incompetent wait until the last extremity to use force, and by then, it is usually too late to use anything, even prayer.
