Profiles is a new feature here at Science Fiction Times.
1. Each one will focus on a writer, artist, or editor involved in science fiction or fantasy.
2. My personal recollections of the person. For an example see my Donald A. Wollheim article.
3. A partial bibliography. In most cases it will not be a complete list. The books I list will be the ones that I think are the “big” books or ones that I found especially interesting. I will include a link to the Internet Science Fiction Data Base for a complete listing.
4. Links to any interesting articles and websites about the person.
I think this will be helpful for a couple of reasons. One is to remind readers of someone they might have forgotten. Another is for the reader who wants to learn about a writer they are not familiar with and see what would be a good place to start with their fiction.
The first “Profile” will be about Lloyd Biggle Jr. The Classic Science Fiction Club, in Yahoo groups, selected Biggle’s novel “Monument” as the book for February. If you are a fan of classic science fiction, I would recommend joining the group. Carl, at Stainless Steel Droppings, posted about the group and next thing I knew, I was a member. Each month a classic and a modern science fiction book is featured.
Here is the list for 2011:
