Orwell was trying to warn us about people like Obama.
Simmons is still taking heat from folks over that, to some he will always be a frothing racist. To a certain set of sci-fi fans, really good writers who express any type of conservative/libertarian leanings is called being ‘brain eaten.’ Like they have a disease that has to be overlooked.
I think he has some lefty type political leanings as well on the social side of things, but I think he is a great writer. In the age of internet and instant info, you are going to at times know too much about writers and artists.
J.C. Hutchins has "The Seventh Son Trilogy" definitely worth checking out.
And Phil Rossi very, very dark.
I’m current on it. Its an ongoing series with, I think, six big novels done.
Weber’s fault is that he is involved in so many projects that it takes him forever to get back to a series. He’s not as bad as George RR Martin though. Latest word is that there’s a HH “OBS” movie in pre-production.
No one here has mentioned Pournelle and Niven’s “Mote” book...truly some of the most epic hard science fiction written.
Can’t mention Ringo without the Legacy of the Aldenata” series. Hell..I read the one with the She-Va Bun-Bun (Hells Faire I think) and had to go start reading Sluggy Freelance.
I liked most of them, the weaker ones were by Julie Cochrane...Cally's war and two others.
bump for later
