Come meet the Elders.
Simply Jews - a cabal of critically undermedicated schemers.
Not many of them left now, and they don't make them anymore, it looks like.
And damn good books too. He will be missed.
Yep, and we all will keep reading him.
I'm reading one now: Search The Sky. I also recommend The Tunnel Under The World, a classic that Amazon is giving away for free.
Mine will be the Gateway series.
I would read them if they were in ebook. I've come to dislike paper and the space it takes up. And no dictionary and no search, either. Pshaw
The problem with the old masters is that many books may remain not digitized.
That true, but slowly the work is done. Some of it by Gutenberg, when the copyrights expire, some by publishers. They have done superb work on Sturgeon's stories - a huge edition.
When I started reading SF 50+ years ago, I started with Isaac Asimov and Pohl & Kornbluth. Now all gone. Along with all the others I started with: Murray Leinster, Robert Heinlein, Arthur C. Clarke...Now if I'm reading a series, I just trust that the author(s) is(are) sufficiently advanced in years to want to end the series while they and I are both still alive!But the Golden Age authors are sorely missed, if only because they encouraged others (who have managed to combine deeper characterisation with equally fascinating plots) into the field.RIP indeed.
Yep, same sentiments here.
