SF - What's In A Name?

descriptionTo mark the publication of Into The No Zone , the second book in my The Sign Of One trilogy, Egmont asked me to do a blog. I chose to write about Science Fiction, where the genre name came from, and why it might not be best genre name ever.

As I was reading this, I was struck by how much of it would probably make a modern editor howl with outrage. The relatively slow start, the exposition, the fact that the protagonist (Edward Leithen) is himself relatively passive and ineffective and m ...more

Bought a hardback first edition from the US, on my brother's recommendation. Brilliant book, a thoroughly enthralling read. Big scope, and a very satisfying ending.
