Example text

Some of us resented being so utterly ignored by the literary establishment. But in retrospect, there was a silver lining: we were allowed to say pretty much what we wanted to say, to explore topics that very few others, and certainly even fewer ‘respectable’ writers, were exploring, and to open new ground and new topics to the world of fiction. It’s interesting to speculate what might have happened to us if we had shown up on the pages of the New York Times Book Review, only to be reviled and subjected to the castigation of the fundamentalist right.

They were distributed in the hundreds of thousands. I remember Dick Carroll telling me at the time that he considered sales of about 200,000 for a given title to be solidly profitable. This is an amazing number. Ten thousand copies of a hardcover book will usually break you even or better financially. As for letting the covers and the blurbs sell the books, they did a handsome job of that. The women were always depicted as flirty, sexy, very femmy, very beautiful, often in their undies, often shooting one another smouldering looks.

I suspect not; I think the old ‘mother would object’ rule still largely governs science fiction publishing. And of course now we have the new dictatorial puritanism of feminism and political correctness imposed on science fiction. The future is a lot less free than it used to be. In the 1960s, softcore porn was less explicit, more dependent on euphemism. Did you enjoy writing these? Did you enjoy the hardcore stuff that came later? Was writing the softcore material a bigger challenge? Or a pain in the ass?
