Fantastic Lives

Autobiographical Essays by Notable Science Fiction Writers



edited by Martin H. Greenberg

Southern Illinois University Press, Carbondale and Edwardsville, IL. 1981. Hardcover in dust jacket. 215 pages. (5¾ X 8¾). Preface by the editor. Nine well-known science fiction authors write about their careers and their writings. Greenberg mentions that very few science fiction writers will write about their own lives and the stories and books they’ve written. Harlan Ellison, Philip José Farmer, Norman Spinrad, and Margaret St. Clair are a few of authors who provide very readable essays.
