EH: This got me thinking about British and Canadian SF, and reflecting
can't think of any SF from Australia or New Zealand. Can anyone point me to
NZ/Australian SF authors? I can think of NZ fantasy authors I've read
(Elizabeth Knox being a favourite), but SF?
LMB: I was about to say Cordwainer Smith, whom I dimly thought was
Australian, but looking him up I see he's American. Still a wonderful
writer, and he does qualify as "lived outside the States." He's been
reprinted enough times, his stuff should be accessible
Real name Paul Linebarger. His bio is pretty amazing.
