Hey article-writer--thanks for giving away the ending of THE WIND-UP GIRL!

Spoiler alert!

That's OK. By the time I read it, I'll have forgotten.

What were we talking about again?

Don Coffin said...

Now, that's a pretty damned good list. (I've even read them all, except for The Wind-Up Girl.)

And the site's down. Forever, eh?

Bill Crider said...

I wonder what knocked it offline. Surely there aren't millions of people trying to get to that article.

Richard Robinson said...

Site's up now. Pretty good list that I've read all but 2 of.

Not a terrible list, but such clumsiness as Changed SF Forever didn't thrill me, and actually ignorant assertions such as this charm me even less:

"#7 Dangerous Visions, edited by Harlan Ellison (1967)
This series helped launch the careers of almost every major author of the New Wave. The first volume included Samuel R. Delany, Philip K. Dick, and J.G. Ballard."

--These three were pretty well established by 1967, even Delany, and most if not all the major "New Wave" writers included in the book. Those actually new, such as Jonathan Post, weren't particularly major contributors. Only slightly less true pf AGAIN, DV.

No Jack Vance. No H.P. Lovecraft.
