What’s your Favorite Frederik Pohl novel?
Upon the occasion of the publication of All the Lives He Led by Frederik Pohl, we thought it might be a propitious time to ask some of his peers to share their picks.
Of course, since we asked science fiction writers, a notoriously independent bunch, they came back with a wide variety of answers. Some talked about only one book; others, about more than one. Some mentioned collaborations. And one named a book that isn’t even a novel.
Everyone had something interesting to say, which isn’t surprising, since one thing that has always been true about Fred Pohl’s novels is that they elicit strong reactions among readers. And they’re never dull.
We’ll be posting one answer every day from now until the release of All the Lives He Led on April 12. We hope you will let us know if you have any favorites too.
