I've been thinking about the kind of books I like and something occurred to me. I haven't read very much good imagination building sci-fi that has been published recently. It seems to me like the old authors had the funniest, most imaginative, most emotionally grabbing stories, especially the short stories. People like Isaac Asimov, or Larry Niven had great stuff. Pate de Foi Groi (I hope I spelled that right) was extremely funny and Flowers for Algernon was the most emotionally gripping story I have ever read. My question. Do I just not know where to look for new good stuff, or is it not as good as it used to be?
