Alephi is going to celebrate the December month as the month of Sci.Fi. writers. We ask one small question to the Sci.Fi. writers worldwide…
Michael Flynn is an American science fiction author. His selling science fiction book in 1984, rapidly becoming a mainstay of Analog SF. Nearly all of Flynn’s work falls under the category of hard science fiction, although his treatment of it can be unusual since he has applied the rigor of hard science fiction to “softer” sciences such as sociology in works such as In the Country of the Blind. His stories have also appeared in Asimov’s, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, Weird Tales. Author of eight novels and two story collections, Flynn is best known for the four-book Firestarseries and the critically praised The Wreck of The River of Stars. And the four book Spiral Arm series. Make that 11 novels and three story collections. Also, best known for the Hugo finalist Eifelheim as well as several Hugo finalist short fiction, the Sturgeon award for short fiction and the Heinlein award for his body of work. He has been employed as an industrial quality engineer and statistician.
Alephi: Which sci.fi. book do you like?
Michael Flynn : I like great many books. I’m not sure there is one that I like above all others. When I think of books that I re-read periodically I could name several, each excellent in its own way. For example, Poul Anderson’s THE BOAT OF A MILLION YEARS. Jack McDevitt’s A TALENT FOR WAR, Connie Willis’s DOOMSDAY BOOK, Edmund Hamilton’s THE HAUNTED STARS.
