"We are infinitely rich, yet we mess about with penny-in-the-slot machines" writes Brian W. Aldiss in this autobiographical work written over the course of one month. From his Oxfordshire home, he ruminates on dreams, education, the role of technology in our lives and the rise and function of science fiction and a variety of other topics. THE SHAPE OF FURTHER THINGS is a window into the life and mind of a Science Fiction Grand Master. "You must recognize the extensive cultivation, the polymath breadth of the mind that produced the whole." - Martin Hillman, Tribune
