[LINK] SF Gateway Books

In two posts made late last year, james_nicoll wonders what science fiction novels (n the English language, in the Anglo-American tradition) inspired people my age to take up science fiction, examining some titles in the 1975 through 1984 period, others in the 1985 through 1994 epoch.

For me, Frederik Pohl's Gateway series was critical, alongh with Clarke's The Songs of Distance Earth and Joan Vinge's Heaven Chronicles. I have to admit that Star Trek and Diane Duane's novels started it for me, though.
