Clifford D. Simak

This is the first installment of a series concerning authors and/or published works that I highly recommend. I will also include downloads of representative works.

The first effort will concern my favorite classic science fiction writer, Clifford D. Simak (1904 - 1988), a Midwestern newspaper man. Although lesser known than other authors his science fiction was a favorite of many of those authors, especially Isaac Asimov. His books are generally more "humanistic" most other science fiction of his time. His robots have feelings. He is one of the few authors whose works I collect as a matter of course.
