Poul Anderson Appreciation
Wednesday, 20 December 2017
Fortuitously, the three preceding posts have catalogued three major English/British influences on Poul Anderson:
Arthur Conan Doyle;
Two others are:
Mary Shelley - the first science fiction novel and the Frankenstein theme, which Anderson addressed in
Olaf Stapledon - cosmic sf, with Stapledon's time scales influencing Anderson's
Was CS Lewis also an influence on Anderson as he was on James Blish? Certainly, Anderson addressed Lewisian themes.
Neil Gaiman is not an influence but an interesting parallel.
Thus, at least seven relevant British authors.
