Science fiction in the '60s had a certain vibe. From The Man in the High Castle to Stranger in a Strange Land, Dune, Lord of Light, and The Planet Buyer, influences of mainstream culture were deeply present. How did contemporary events shape the fiction? What other influences filtered into the stories, characters, and outlooks of this special era of mid-century fiction? We'll discuss our favorites, as well as some forgotten classics of the time.
