Subject: RE: BS: Growing Up SF
I'm glad that someone has mentioned Damon Knight. He was an important figure in 20th Century SF. He was a writer, editor and critic.
I never really enjoyed his novels very much but he was a great short story writer. The short story has always been an important vehicle for SF (probably because of the SF magazine format) and Damon Knight was definitely one of the best short story writers.
