Intro and The Autumn People 1

Thought it was funny that on page two of the intro this book was compared to Stand on Zanzibar which was one of last month's books. Joe, I'm assuming that's a coincidence or did you know?

Who cares?

Postscript

Pretty interesting to hear from the author and some of his concerns about the real world. Most if not all are still concerns 30 years later.

I really liked this one.

This is the first book I’ve read by him but hope not my last. I’ll have to investigate what else he did.
