VIDEO: Science Fiction Legends Talk About The SF Grand Masters

Filmmaker Eric Solstein has uploaded the first two parts of a larger tribute to Science Fiction’s Grand Masters presented at the 2000 SFWA Nebula banquet at the installation of Brian Aldiss. There’s wonderful footage of so many SF legends, including Jack Williamson, Frederik Pohl, Isaac Asimov, James Gunn, William Tenn, Clifford D. Simak, Joe Haldeman, Philip Jos@eacute; Farmer, Norman Spinrad, Damon Knight (for whom the Grand Master Award is now named), Julie Schwartz, Gene Wolfe, Hal Clement, Poul Anderson, Samuel R. Delany, Barry Malzberg and Brian Aldiss.

There’s a longer follow-up video after the break…

    I enjoyed this video very much.

  2. That was fantastic.  Wonderful to see and hear so many of these authors that I have heard of but have never seen pictures of nor heard speak.  Makes me think there has to be so much more to this somewhere.  Surely they didn’t spend the time with these authors and get just one little snippet of information. 

    I especially enjoyed the part about Alfred Bester.

  3. Those where great. I hope one day I’m able to see the whole tribute presentation. We need more of these kinds of documentaries.

    Thanks for sharing!

  4. In another universe Hume Cronyn could have played Barry Malzberg.
