Frederik Pohl, SF master, dies at 93

New York Times has a very interesting article on Pohl that also includes a brief look at the history of SF in the U.S., in which he played a major role.

Now would be a good time to read, or re-read, one or more of his novels.

    Mr. Pohl will certainly be missed, both by fellow old-timers and by all the newer fans who followed his Hugo-winning blog The Way the Future Blogs.

    And we did recently list his The Space Merchants on our “Books Under Consideration” post.
