    Robert Silverberg!!!

    Couldn't find a thread about Silverberg. I know this guy has written a lot of books. Like Phil Dick numbers. So far I've only read Dying Inside. Not what I was expecting. Very 'literary', as they say ;) interesting. But as typical of a lot of first person narratives I've come across, it was...

A brilliant stylist, great character writer, and he walked like no one else the fine line between SF...

    Robert Silverberg

    Not much about him here so I thought I’d remedy that. He seems to be one of those writers that manages to straddle SF and Fantasy. Valentine Pontifex and The Majipoor Chronicles are (to me) much closer to Fantasy than Science Fiction so I wasn’t sure where to stick this post. However, other...
