Classics of Science Fiction at Loscon 42
By John Hertz: We’ll take up three Classics of SF at Loscon XLII, one discussion each. Come to as many as you like. You’ll be welcome to join in.
I’m still with “A classic is a work that survives its own time. After the currents which might have sustained it have changed, it remains, and is seen to be worthwhile for itself.” If you have a better definition, bring it.
Each of our three is famous in a different way. Each may be more interesting now than when first published.
Have you read them? Have you re-read them?
Arthur C. Clarke
A Fall of Moondust (1961)
