William Tenn is the pseudonym for the science fiction work of Philip Klass.

Born May 9, 1920, in London, England, he moved before his second birthday with his parents to New York where he grew up in Brooklyn. After serving in the United States Army during World War II as a combat engineer in Europe, he held a job as a technical editor with an Air Force radar and radio laboratory and was employed by Bell Labs.

Since 1945, he has written 11 books, plus dozens of short stories, academic articles and essays. He began writing while working at Bell Labs, and during the early 1950s, readers of Galaxy Science Fiction looked forward to issues featuring his satirical science fiction. The Science Fiction Encyclopedia ranked him as "one of the genre's very few genuinely comic, genuinely incisive writers of short fiction."
