Fredrick Pohl, the Nebula-award and Hugo-award winning author has passed away. He was the co-author of The Space Merchants, my favorite science fiction book, ever. And one so prescient that it is more applicable to today than when it was written half a century ago. It posits a world where corporations have taken over and people exist mostly as consumers, but he made it funny as well.
I will miss him.
