Science fiction is my true love, though I enjoy reading other fiction, especially when it is
close to science fiction. I found out that quoting prose is harder than quoting verse, but still I have bits
that impressed me by their sheer literary value or by their messages. I like other authors also,
and this selection is by no means exclusive.
Ursula K. LeGuin
Great LeGuin writes books that can change you.
Philip K. Dick
P.K. Dick is the definitive authority on reality. All you Matrix fans, meet your maker!
It is said that there are three schools in science fiction: American, Russian and Stanislaw Lem. My favourite author.
J. G. Ballard
Science fiction turns its eye inwards. Learn the secrets of homo sapiens.
Gibson is always one step ahead. His influence on the popular culture is enormous.
If he wrote in the fifties, he would have been a science fiction author.
H. P. Lovecraft
Sometimes he is simply boring. But other times he tells of things beyond others' sight.
I have not read much from him but this short story was interesting.
Maybe the author who influenced me the most, because I read him when I was a child.
I am not half as sentimental as Bradbury, but I have a soft spot for Martians.
The website turned out to be kind of gloomy and depressing. I am a fan of Douglas Adams, and I think that he can save the site by making us smile (at least).
