"No less a critic than C. S. Lewis has described the ravenous addiction that these magazines inspired; the same phenomenon has led me to call science fiction the only genuine consciousness-expanding drug." Arthur C. Clarke

  1. Hmm…. No women?

    My top five definitely includes Ursula Le Guin (although, she’s not exactly hard science fiction).

    I tend to enjoy single works of authors more than their corpus. For example, a few Silverberg novels are amazing and the rest is crud. The same thing goes for John Brunner — his Stand on Zanzibar (1969) is my favorite science fiction novel despite the rather banal level of the most his works…

    Cool blog! I’ve had fun perusing.
