    That was awesome. I went straight to AbeBooks and ordered a copy.

    Yeah, a lot of the 30s, 40s, and 50s greats were — most got worse in their old age. Ted Sturgeon’s swansong, “Godbody” was about a Jesus-figure giving sexual healing. Everyone know’s Heinlein’s “Stranger in a Strange Land” with its sex and cannibalism. Clarke’s? “Friday” had group marriage.

    In short, great stuff that I’ve loved ever since I was a perverted pubescent girl!

    O, I forgot to add Judith Merril’s most persistent ‘universe’ — she wrote several stories about a generation ship that launched with 20 women and 4 men — the men were necessarily subordinates, almost unwilling polygamists, and the little boys dreamed of finding a planet so they could be equal participants in their society.

    Remember, this woman was Cory Doctorow’s mentor.
