The sci-fi author behind Steven Spielberg’s A.I. shares his thoughts on the present, the future, and his own work and life.
“We are infinitely rich, yet we mess about with penny-in-the-slot machines,” writes Brian W. Aldiss in this autobiographical work written over the course of one month. From his Oxfordshire home, he ruminates on dreams, education, the role of technology in our lives, the rise and function of science fiction, and a variety of other topics. The Shape of Further Things is a window into the life and mind of a Science Fiction Grand Master.
Winner of two Hugo Awards, one Nebula Award, and named a Grand Master by the Science Fiction Writers of America, Brian W. Aldiss challenged readers’ minds for over fifty years with literate, thought-provoking, and inventive science fiction.
“This short book flows with large ideas, a time capsule now from the grandest of writers.” —SF Site
