3. A lesser-known 70s comedic novel from Brian W. Aldiss 4. And finally, the one I’m most excited about. Evolved humans are thrust into conflict on a terraformed, but dying, Mars. With a fun Powers cover to boot! The rest of Frederick Turner’s SF output appears to be the epic poem variety according to SF Encyclopedia. By Patrick Parrinder. Our Vice-President Brian Aldiss was, first and foremost, one of the greats of post-war British science fiction. His career began with Non-Stop (), passed through the experimental ‘New Wave’ of the late s (which he spearheaded with Michael Moorcock and J. G. Ballard), and led on to such triumphs as The Malacia Tapestry () and the Helliconia .

Fangrrls is about kicking down doors, breaking boundaries and celebrating female fans with fun, witty and entertaining content. Non-Stop (published in the US as Starship) is the classic SF novel of discovery and exploration, a brilliant evocation of a familiar setting seen through the eyes of a primitive. Brian Wilson Aldiss is one of the most important voices in science-fiction writing today. He wrote his first novel while working as a bookseller in Oxford.
