Dimension of Sheckley

A tribute to the science fiction author

Introduction:

Roberto Sheckley is a program of writing of science fiction that dark novels humourous and short histories dates as of 1951 to today. Its work is remarkable for him is originality boggling of the mind and unexpected twists genuine of the diagram. It is an important influence in Douglas Adams.

This site includes the short lists of its novels and histories. I have reviewed enough of novels and several short anthologies of history. These overhauls think to help to populate the best work with the finding. I make that most of his early work it is outside printing, but the second copies of the hand are quite easy to find. A good place to watch is the book search. ABE book search.

Did I mention he was funny?

Construction:

This page is under construction. I'm sure there are a few things that have escaped my attention. Tell me what I've missed out! Has Sheckley ever done any other interviews? Who was Captain Video? Any graphic files related to Sheckley would be welcome e.g. covers of novels, especially "Dimension of Miracles".
