(p.197) Conclusion
Frederik Pohl

Michael R. Page

University of Illinois Press

This conclusion reflects on Frederik Pohl's legacy as a science fiction writer, editor, agent, and fan. Pohl died on September 2, 2013, leaving a chasm in the world of science fiction. Among those who paid tribute were Joe Haldeman, James Gunn, Mack Hassler, and Christopher McKitterick. But Pohl's legacy continues and will continue for many decades to come: through the readers who discover his work for the first time on a library shelf or paperback rack; through the writers who are influenced by his writing, his editing, his advice, and his mere presence in the field; and through the scholars who will find in Pohl an astute critic of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries and an advocate for future alternatives to the roads humanity now travels. Pohl lived a life in science fiction, building and shaping it for over three-quarters of a century.

Keywords:   science fiction, Frederik Pohl, Joe Haldeman, James Gunn, Mack Hassler, Christopher McKitterick
