Ursula K. Le Guin, Spider Robinson, and Peter S. Beagle all credit Edgar Pangborn's fiction as an inspiration. Born in 1909 to a literary family, his work created a "humanist" school of science fiction which focused on human, emotional stories. He mentored these young writers through letters and, to a great degree, through his fiction. Yet today, he is largely undiscovered by 21st-century readers. Peter S. Beagle and Spider Robinson sit down to talk about Pangborn's work, the man, and his influence.
