Subject: RE: BS: Growing Up SF
Heinlein & Bradbury, Kornbluth & Pohl in my adolescence -- plus some isolated works by authors not associated with the genre: Orwell, _1984_; Kipling, "Easy as ABC"; Davis, "Adrift on the Policy Level"; Shiras, "In Hiding"; Forster, "The Machine Stops"; Huxley, _Brave New World_. Those have all worn well. In more recent years I have not been part of the subculture, but I like Le Guin's _The Dispossessed_ & a couple of Greg Egan's books.
