Important genre history work 28 mars 2000
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I can safely recommend Frederik Pohl's _The Way the Future Was_ to everyone with an interest in the history of science fiction and science fiction fandom. Pohl tells with a great eye to relevant detail about being a pulp editor, a fan, and an author and agent. The photos are great: especially the photo of Pohl with Gene Roddenberry and an acretts in a kind of Star Trek swimsuit had me cracking up. The non-SF, autobiographical detail is also interesting.

Autobiographyn of American Science Fiction being born 24 décembre 2011
Par C. lillich - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
This is not just an autobiography of Mr. Pohl, this is an autobiography of the beginning of American Science Fiction as we know it. As a rule, Mr. Pohl's syntax has me screaming. Outloud. This would not be one of those times.

The Way The Future Was, aside from being a really snappy title, sets the groundwork for what has become a significant industry, and Mr. Pohl allows us in on the ground floor. Iconic figures like Asimov, Heinlein, L. Ron Hubbard become people you meet, watch grow up and literally change the world.

There is an immediacy to the work, that even today makes it fresh. There are some sections with truly cringe worthy slang but barring that, it is a window into a golden period where you get to watch the birth of something very, very special.

Of all the words Mr. Pohl has written, I like these best.

Quirky and Fun 7 mai 2013

Intriguing insights into the coterie of sf writers and editors that formed the basis for the initial phase of the coming of age of Science Fiction. These were many of the authors I read when I was close to the age they were when they started out. At many points, however, they also sounded like typical college age young-and-not-adults with their infighting with other sf groups and within their own ranks; with the partying that drove other tenants away. This is a good companion read for Damon Knight's book on the Futurians (of which Pohl was one of the prime movers and leaders). Can also see that some mythical figures, such as John Campbell and Hugo Gernsback, were complete with serious faults: Campbell with his racism really based on being superior (oh, how we strive for that); yet he was also a masterful editor. Hugo Gernsback has the genre's most prestigious aware named after him, he was imaginative, but he was totally dishonest with his writers, so often not paying them at all (unless forced to in a lawsuit). And, I just discovered Pohl's web site ([...]) and his blog ([...] He lives!

One of my favorite autobiographies 23 avril 2012
Par E. Q. Taft - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
Fred Pohl is one of the last of the original science fiction greats. He started publishing stories in the 1930's and he's still going. (I don't actually know if he's working on new SF now, but he's blogging at least...) He's been just about everything one can be in the field: fan, writer, editor, agent, president of SFWA, and more. This book is a marvelous look at his life up to the mid-70's (it's incredible that it's been so long since it was written!). From his experience in the Young Communist League in the 1930's (and what that meant at the time) to his service as an Air Force weatherman in World War II, his sojourn in the advertising business, his exploration of such fields as number theory, UFOs, ESP, and cryogenics, and of course his thoughts on writing, editing, publishing, teaching, and more. All written with a wonderfully dry sense of humor. It's just one of my favorite autobiographical works around.
