One of Fay Weldon’s Favorites

Fay Weldon, author behind the first episode of Upstairs, Downstairs and a noted feminist, named her 6 favorite books for The Week. Lo and behold! The second book on her list is —

Dangerous Visions edited by Harlan Ellison (Gollancz, $18). This 1967 collection of science fiction stories includes the great masters of the genre at the time, and the times were rich indeed. If science fiction is still a closed book to you, try these prophetic, insightful, and ingenious views of a future, and reform. A bonus: Writers everywhere are much cheered by the blessed Ellison’s “Pay the writer” rant, which you can watch on YouTube.

Ellison told readers of his Forum he is “soaring right now.”
