A science fiction writer's blog.
I have not read any of these books. What sort of SF does Poul Anderson write?It is a pretty impressive collection of a single authors works!
I'd best describe him, from my one book, as hard sci-fi with social commentary. Tau Zero at least is about the people and from what I've seen thats the general style.Main problem I have with Pouls writing is its age. This is just my opiinion, but it is like reading a 1950s sci-fi film and not all of those aged well.
ya, Poul isnt a author i can recommend. having read Tau Zero, Brain Wave, Mirkheim, and Three Hearts... at an early age i kept getting his stuff thinking that he would write something as good. he's a clunky writer that i've had to put down a few books after getting a ways thru. there's about a dozen authors i know better about now. pretty late in the game for the bulb to go off, but..will send more pics when they are excavated.
