Dream Makers: Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers at Work Reviews

    Really should be called profiles rather than interviews. The most annoying ones were Delany, Malzberg and Disch (not surprising, since they're about the 3 most annoying writers in sci-fi); also Moorcock and Ballard (I loved his "I don't believe in a fiction of nuance"...evidently he doesn't believe in reading what he's written either). Interesting were Farmer, Van Vogt (with his systems), Sheckley and Silverberg. Oh, and E C Tubb--he was a cool guy. This on writers' tendencies to gloss themselves up: "'I married a beautiful White Russian countess, that was my first wife, I was 16 and she was 21, and she promised me an estate in Estonia...that poor woman, never shall I forget, the red smear under the bus.' And then the balalaikas play and they say, 'Ah, that man's lived, hasn't he? That man's lived!'"

    Probably four stars the first time I read it but now it is comfort reading whilst traveling on a plane, my least favorite form of transportation. Still revelatory in spots, occasionally annoying and diverting throughout.
