Algis Budrys’s BENCHMARKS
Over at the website of the Zeno Agency (home to such Gateway stalwarts as Tim Powers and James P. Blaylock, as well as Gollancz favourites Ben Aaronovitch, Maggie Furey, Charlaine Harris, Ian McDonald, John Meaney, Justina Robson and Brandon Sanderson), there’s an interesting article on Algis Budrys.
Although best known for his science fiction (particularly the extraordinary Rogue Moon) Zeno highlights the extensive influence of Budrys’s non-fiction – particularly his review columns for The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction between 1975 and 1993, and his earlier reviews for Galaxy, between 1965 and 1971, which are available in the SF Gateway eBook, Benchmarks.
Algis Budrys‘s books can be found via his SF Gateway author page, and you can read more about him in his entry at The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction. The excellent Zeno Agency article can be found here.
