David Langford, Adam Roberts (Introduction). Compulsive reading, crammed with insights and laughs. Lists with This Book.

Adam Roberts on The SEX Column (2006 Hugo nominee for Best Related Book): . .this is as good an overview of SF, publishing, fandom and myriad related topics through the 90s and the beginning of the noughties as I can think of, and its writing is consistently on the side of things, not only in its inherent likeability, but in its. sheer technical excellence. Nobody I can think of in genre, and few writers working today, writes comic prose as well as Langford.
