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…
Dave Truesdale has edited Tangent and now Tangent Online since 1993. It has been nominated for the Hugo Award six times, and the World Fantasy Award once. A former editor of the Bulletin of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America, he also served as a World Fantasy Award judge in 1998, and for several years wrote an original online column for The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. Now retired, he keeps close company with his SF/F library, the coffeepot, and old movie channels on TV. He lives in Kansas City, MO.
Alephi : Which sci.fi. book do you like?
Dave Truesdale : Walter M. Miller Jr.’s, A Canticle for Leibowitz is one of the great SF novels. The wide angle temporal scope and its themes of the cyclical nature – the rise and fall of technological civilizations – the tension between those of Faith and Secular Science – and those who preserve Knowledge for future generations, are as timeless now as when it was published in 1960.
