RIP Brian Aldiss


#1

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

#2

Probably the last of the ‘Golden Age’ writers.


#3

Not All DIS


#4

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


#5

Maybe the Helliconia trilogy


#6

Hothouse. Well greasy, m9


#7

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.


#8

that’s a good endorsement


#9

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)
