Moorecock’s writing is utterly languid and sublime, a sexual acid trip in a period when free love actually meant something, and was taken to its utter extreme. A brilliant fusion of a noir detective story set in a detailed and believable future world, its pace is relentless and like all good books leaves the reader wishing for more pages to turn. On Feb 26th, she will talk as part of the Fantastic Fiction Salon. Thus Jake is forced to erase his trip, restoring events to their original shape, having basically wasted five years of his life that he could’ve saved if he’d just watched that damn episode of The Twilight Zone.

A masterful piece of literature, an amazing feat of SF. Well, Tiffany had perfect pitch for color. Yes, Fonzie, the character played by Henry Winkler on Happy Days. Like supernatural gods, who exist outside of time and physics, these natural gods — sometimes former humans or advanced AI computers — are still beyond our comprehension.

The 19th century was the first in which life was continually being metamorphosed by technological change. Just as had his Enlightenment predecessors, Wells refuses to read religious meaning into a natural disaster. In 1968, critics slammed the film and it bombed at the box office. Thus Huxley's Brave New World (1932) projects a black amalgam of Wellsian rationality and the names and phrases of revolutionary socialism in a specific context of mobile and affluent corporate capitalism.

Johnny Pez dispenses his knowledge in a series of essays: The publishing history of the Positronic Robot and Foundation stories: By March 18, 1941, Isaac Asimov had written thirty-one stories, sold seventeen, and fourteen had been published. He aid all of sci-fi literature, not just in all of the Culture work, I'd say some of the civilizations in Peter Hamiltons works are more advanced than the Culture, and certainly those in Vernor Vinge's work too. (In fact I'm surprised VV's work hasn't been suggested yet, so I'll add it, Read Vernor Vinge's "A Fire Upon The Deep" whilst your at it! :D) Doh, I misread his question.

In fact, it may be so far that it would take a lifetime or more to get there. Northrop Frye identifies "romance" in its questing, adventurous, persistently nostalgic, and "perennially child-like quality" as the "nearest of all literary forms to the wish-fulfillment dream" (186). One of the earliest examples of the alien invasion film, thanks mainly to the rise of Cold War paranoia. I found this book unreadable. (Nicholas Whyte) Steven Brust and Emma Bull, Freedom and Necessity (1997) "a very good fantasy, in epistolary form, set mostly in England in 1849 but with a long letter and part of another from Ireland. (Also the hero is of partly Irish ancestry and occasionally says things like "mo chridh".) Friedrich Engels and a club of occultists figure prominently." ( Jerry Friedman on rec.arts.sf.written, later amended by email) Ireland very much in the background here, as the framing context for a retelling of the story of Marco Polo with a slightly magical twist.
