  1. That Helium list, the one that purports to have the most famous sf authors is poor at best. First there is no mention of the grandmaster himself. What kind of a list of best sf authors does not have Heinlein.

    Second, the number one is Mary Shelly. Is she the most famous sf writer? Really? The general public considers Frankenstein as horror. And I for one do not think that the Modern Prometheus is the best sf book of all time, which it has to be to propel her to such a lofty place.

    Lastly, in the top ten we have Michael Chrichton. The sheer number of names that is better deserving of that spot is mind boggling.

    Overall a shoddy, messy job. Shame on you Helium.
