RIP Brian Aldiss

Not sure if he’s well known here but one of the giants of science fiction writing - 92 is a pretty good innings all told

Probably the last of the ‘Golden Age’ writers.

Not All DIS

I’ve never read anything by him. which one’s are his best?

Maybe the Helliconia trilogy

Hothouse. Well greasy, m9

Hothouse, Greybeard, Barefoot in the Head, Helliconia Trilogy.

I was wrong about him being ‘Golden Age’. He really started in the Sixties and has never stopped.


that’s a good endorsement

Greybeard - as ripped off by P.D. James for The Children of Men (at least we got a great film out of it in the end)
