Overview
Chronicling the events and key ideas from the second half of the 20th century in both the world of science fiction and the world at large, this collection of insights and musings from a Grand Master of the genre offers a unique perspective with the edge of honed artist. Robert Silverberg offers up essays on unique scientific ideas as well as on real characters and society that contemplates the end-of-world empires, resonating with contemporary news and headlines but also taking into account the role of the writer who seeks inspiration in true events. The author also takes stock of his contemporaries, providing an inside look at the lives of other greats such as Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, Phillip K. Dick, Harlan Ellison, James Tiptree Jr., and Jack Vance. This edition includes an expanded section on writing science fiction, creating an invaluable resource for new writers venturing into the field on whom Silverberg has made a significant impact.
