Mostly familiar names, but I didn't know the chronological order in which they dominated the genre scene.
Actually, his post titled "The Sun Will Come Up Tomorrow" is a rant against naysayers of the genre. And the listing is only incidental - to make a point. But it was this listing (oldest figures first) that I found interesting:
- Stanley G Weinbaum, Robert E Howard, H P Lovecraft
- Robert A Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, Theodore Sturgeon, A E van Vogt, Leigh Brackett
- Jack Vance, Ray Bradbury, Arthur C Clarke
- Robert Sheckley, Alfred Bester, Cyril Kornbluth
- Robert Silverberg, J G Ballard, Anne McCaffrey
- Roger Zelazny, Larry Niven, Ursula K Le Guin
