About the Author
ERIC ARTHUR BLAIR (19031950), better known by his pen name George Orwell, was an English author and journalist whose best-known works include the dystopian novel 1984 and the satirical novella Animal Farm. He is consistently ranked among the best English writers of the 20th century, and his writing has had a huge, lasting influence on contemporary culture. Several of his coined words have since entered the English language, and the word "Orwellian" is now used to describe totalitarian or authoritarian social practices.

DR. RICHARD BROWN was one of Canada's foremost experts on seagoing birds and worked for many years as a marine biologist with the Canadian Wildlife Service in Halifax.
