Alfred Bester

tenser said the tensor

Have you seen our weblog or our monthly book review?

I don't know much about Alfred Bester; by the time I was starting to read science fiction his career had already come to a conclusion, and he was never one of the great household names, like Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, or Robert A. Heinlein. I discovered him because authors I respected kept mentioning his name in reverent tones.

Fortunately for me, and for you, much of his work is back in print. I read the three titles listed below, and I enjoyed them. See the reviews for more details.
