Angela Steinmüller (born 15 April 1941 in Schmalkalden) is a German mathematician and science fiction author.[1] Together with her husband Karlheinz Steinmüller she has written science fiction short stories and novels that depict human development on a cosmic scale, grounded in an analysis of social structures and mechanisms. Angela and Karlheinz Steinmüller were not only among the most widely read authors in the GDR, ranking at the top of a 1989 poll of most popular science fiction authors in the GDR,[2] but their works continue to be republished.
