I just read with great sadness that Poul Anderson passed away last night. For those who don’t know (are there any such?) – Poul was one of the Science Fiction greats from when Science Fiction could really be written with upper-case letters, when it used to be about great and wonderous things that evoked a sense of wonder and made us dream of places far away and beings strange. In the past few years we’ve lost so many of the greats of SF – Isaac Asimov, Gordon R. Dickson, Douglas Adams and now Poul Anderson. I’m not even sure that there are many of the greats left from the days when SF really flourished … :-(
