"For me, fantasy must be about something, otherwise it's foolishness... ultimately it must be about human beings, it must be about the human condition, it must be another look at infinity, it must be another way of seeing the paradox of existence."
GeorgeClaytonJohnson (1929-) was born and brought up in rural Wyoming during the Depression.
Because much of the writing of Johnson had to be geared for TV or film, it has many of the cultural and thematic limitations inherent in getting a story past the network/studio censors, and pleasing the sponsors; something that undoubtedly enhances its datedness.
Georges Dodds is a research scientist in vegetable crop physiology, who for close to 25 years has read and collected close to 2000 titles of predominantly pre-1950 science-fiction and fantasy, both in English and French.
