Isaac Asimov – “Singer of the Empire”

If you haven’t read the Isaac Asimov’s book series “Foundation” and don’t want spoilers, we recommend that you return to this article after reading the books.

Science concepts in fiction Larry Niven

Lawrence Van Cott Niven was born on April 30, 1938, and now lives and lives in Los Angeles. One of the most titled American science fiction writers, winner of the Hugo, Locus, Dietmar, Nebula and many others awards.

In the field of fantasy, he noted the cycle “Magic is leaving”, within the framework of which he proposed a world where magical energy is a non-renewable resource. He began to write at a time when the science fiction community was seized by the idea of ​​avoiding traditional science fiction (the so-called “New Wave”). However, the trends had little effect on Niven, who began to bend his line, relying on traditional science fiction, which he read from childhood, and paying great attention to the scientific side of his works.
