Brian Aldiss, RIP

It’s sad news that Brian Aldiss has died at the age of 92. Aldiss was one of the most consistently intelligent writers of science fiction/fantastic literature, always innovating. He played an important part in the rise of ‘New Wave’ SF centred on New Worlds magazine.
After Wells, he was the first SF writer I properly discovered, reading this millennia-spanning collection of unsettling and imaginative stories when I was about ten years old (the edition pictured is one I acquired later after losing the first copy) .
