I know this is the Lounge and we're not supposed to talk about anything arts related, but I dont know where to post this. My two favorite authors are Frank Herbert and Robert A. Heinlein. The thing that I like about them is that their styles aren't so basic. They have a dignity to their writting. And they're sci fi authors. Does anyone know of any modern Sci Fi authors that write with a style equal to those classic masters of Sci Fi? I've looked all over the place. I've read Orson Scott Card and although he writes well structured stories, he's among the traditional typical authoring style. Are all the good and stylistic Science Fiction authors gone?
