Who Sent Me This Book?

Hell's Cartographers - Kindle edition by Aldiss, Brian, Harrison, Harry,  Bester, Alfred, Knight, Damon, Pohl, Frederik, Silverberg, Robert.  Literature & Fiction Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.

I got a surprise in the mail today–Hell’s Cartographers. It’s a trip “inside the minds of six legendary sci-fi authors”: Alfred Bester, Damon Knight, Frederick Pohl, Robert Silverberg (met him once), Brian W. Aldiss, and Harry Harrison. Classics all.

I have no idea who sent me this. I suspect it was one of you out there: thank you, whoever you are! I’m sure I’ll enjoy this book and will probably review it. I love classic science fiction. This is a 2018 edition of a book originally published in 1975. I’m especially looking forward to the chapter entitled “How We Work.” (How did they manage to leave out Andre Norton? Oh, well…)

Let’s see if I can deduce the identity of the sender. Sherlock Holmes would’ve figured it out already.

  1. I did a lot of sci-fi reading years ago. But not one name on that list seems familiar to me. I might have read a few of their stories, but have forgotten their names. However, I bet if I saw a list of each author’s books, at one time I probably read a few.
