A Reader's History of Science Fiction

Jun 21, 2021

By 1970, the New Wave in science fiction had made peace with a surge of new hard sci-fi works and writers. At the forefront of this trend was Larry Niven, who took a unique path in hard sci-fi by proposing new physics, but still applying it rigorously. In this episode, we explore his work.

Book recommendation: Ringworld by Larry Niven.
