E E Doc Smith
Phillip Jose Farmer
Phillip K Dick
A.E Van Vogt
There are many others.
Phil Farmer is my all time favorite author. I always said I’d knock Brad Pitt down to get a chance to meet Mr. Farmer, but luckily I didn’t have too (rats…).
I went to a SciFi convention where he was guest of honor and got to meet and speak to him and sit in on his seminars and have him autograph my books. It was a very good experience to be in the presence of someone who has given me so many hours of pleasure and escape. Start with Riverworld, but don’t try and go through the whole series at once….
I once heard Robert Heinlein got his start writing for romance and confession magazines, so I took a que from him and gave it a shot myself. I made between $300.00 and $500.00 a story and it really was easy money considering I had so much fun doing it. I’m thinking of becoming the next Jackie Collins. I’m going in for the lobotomy next week. (No offense, Jackie, if you happen to be reading this….)
