Isaac Asimov & Human Destiny: A good starting point for delving into the literature of science fiction, ranging from classics such as 1984 and Dune to more recent works by Vernor Vinge and Neal Stephenson. Sci Fi novels are categorized as The Hard Stuff, Harbingers of Hope, Dire Warnings, Gedankenexperiments, Alternative History, Time Travel, Humor, and Predictive Successes.
Isaac Asimov & Human Destiny:Who dealt with the scale of human destiny better than the great Isaac Asimov, in his Foundation series? Elsewhere I've said about him: "Asimov served wondrous meals-of-the-mind to a civilization that was starved for clear thinking about the future. To this day, his visions spice our ongoing dinner-table conversation about human destiny."
A film is coming! "Isaac Asimov is considered the father of modern science fiction and, in my opinion at least, the Foundation series was his crowning glory. It is a series of seven novels set far in the future where humans have colonized thousands and thousands of planets, spanning the universe. One man forms a mathematical equation that predicts the downfall of this civilization and the following novels span the 550 years of the dark age that follows."

From prolific Sci-Fi book cover illustrator/designer David Pelham whose colours and style are unmistakeable - Pohl and Kornbluth's "The Space Merchants." Great title and I love the symbolism of a giant finger as a rocketship.
David Pelham - The Space Merchants This satiric gem was almost comedic when it was published. Not so much now.

BOOKS WORTH READING: A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess | "A brilliant novel… a savage satire on the distortions of the single and collective minds.” - New York Times...READ MORE AT WORDSNQUOTES.COM.
Georgia says: "A Clockwork Orange, Anthony Burgess (1962) but the 1972 cover designed by David Pelham, which has become truly iconic. This is a unique novel that, thanks to Stanley Kubrick's 1971 film, has become a fundamental cultural touchstone, and this cover evokes that aesthetic so is instantly recognisable and taps into the squeamish eye motif of the narrative."

A Clockwork Orange, Anthony Burgess, 1962. On the other hand, it is this 1972 iteration of Burgess’s classic novel, designed by David Pelham, that has truly become iconic. The dust jacket of the first edition, at least in our minds, leaves something to be desired.
