oh, the joys of cheesy sci-fi from a simpler time. Brunner ought to be as well known as Aasimov, Heinlein and Arthur C. Clarke -- he's just as important. This particular book is sort of silly and moralizing a la Heinlein, but Brunner's Stand on Zanzibar remains one of the most important works of fiction that no one knows about.

Definitely not my favorite John Brunner book, but then I don't usually like the sub-genre of science fiction that this book represents.

The late John Brunner was perhaps as well known for much of his career in the US as in the UK. A leftwing activist, with particular connections to the peace movement, much of his best and most mature fiction is involved in a complex analysis of social trends and where they will take us--novels like Stand on Zanzibar which deals with overpopulation, among other things, and The Sheep Look Up, which...more
