About Author

Stephen Schleicher began his career writing for the Digital Media Online community of sites, including Digital Producer and Creative Mac covering all aspects of the digital content creation industry. He then moved on to consumer technology, and began the Coolness Roundup podcast. A writing fool, Stephen has freelanced for Sci-Fi Channel's Technology Blog, and Gizmodo. Still longing for the good ol' days, Stephen launched Major Spoilers in July 2006, because he is a glutton for punishment. You can follow him on Twitter @MajorSpoilers and tell him your darkest secrets...


  1. With Mr. Bradbury’s passing all the old Masters of Sci-Fi are now gone. It is a sad moment to be sure. His generation of writers came out of the pulp fiction era, where sci-fi meant rampaging robots and green bug-eyed monsters, and were the first to write serious science fiction instead of giant spiders and movie monster crap. You could always count on Azimov, Bradbury, Clark and Heinlein for a terrific read that didn’t insult your intelligence. And some of these fellows were pretty smart in their own right. Arthur C. Clarke invented the first telecommunication satellite, for pete’s sake! We will never see their like again, and though there are some pretty great Sci-Fi writers out there today, like David Weber and Jack McDevitt, John Scalzi is about the only living Sci-Fi writer who is still able to capture the innocent and rollicking good fun with his sci-fi that the old masters were able to produce with such ease. So long, Ray Bradbury, and thanks for all the books.

    • Those four authors you mentioned set the ground work for the science fiction that we currently enjoy. I hoping to stumble across an current author with their talent, but I am doubtful I ever will.
