RIP James Gunn

#1 Post by Bob Juch » Thu Feb 11, 2021 12:55 pm

James Gunn, Prizewinning Science Fiction Author, Dies at 97

In short stories like “The Immortals” and novels like “The Listeners,” Mr. Gunn helped prepare readers for the future.

This is one I would have missed on the "Dead or Alive," though I knew he wasn't immortal.

"The Immortals" is interesting because he basically rewrote/updated the novel about a decade or so ago to reflect changed technology and medical knowledge. Both the original and revised versions are good reads.

He also did a story or two on the OTR show "X Minus One." (Or maybe it was "Dimension X" - those two swapped a lot of stories.)

When I saw the subject I thought you were talking about the MCU movie director.

His death occurred back in December and I read about it at the time, although it wasn't as widely publicized as it has been this week.
