Classic Authors Speak

Via From A SciFi Standpoint, outtakes from a series of interviews recorded by James Gunn between 1968 and 1978 as part of his Literature of Science Fiction Lecture Series. Comments from Poul Anderson, Jack Williamson, John Brunner, Harlan Ellison, Clifford Simak, Frederik Pohl, Gordon Dickson, Damon Knight, and Isaac Asimov. Worth it for the history, and also to hear how some of these great old guys sounded.

I've been reassessing where I am as a writer lately, particularly as one interested in writing SF, this video and the wisdom it contained has given me more to think on. It was fascinating. Thanks, Lou.
