Barry N. Malzberg reflects back over four decades of writing science fiction, giving an insiderAs view of the field during that time which few can match, both for its authority and for the sharp and witty way he describes the highs and lows of one science fiction writerAs career. He also writes vivid profiles of writers and editors, ranging from the titans who transformed the field, such as John W. Campbell, to once popular writers who are now all but forgotten, such as Hugo Award-winner Mark Clifton. AIf there is any particular cachet to my perspective, A he writes, Ait comes because my career is, perhaps more than some, metaphoric.A The original, shorter version of the book was widely praised, as by the "San Francisco Chronicle": AContains literary criticism ranging over the whole history of the field. . . . this is a mordant, brilliant book, A and by "The Washington Post Book World: " AMalzberg makes persuasively clear that the best of science fiction should be valued as literature and nothing else.A "Breakfast in the Ruins" is an indispensable book for every science fiction reader.

Barry Malzberg lives with his wife and daughter in Manhattan and is worried about having recently reached the ominous age of seventy….

Mr. Malzberg’s first hardcover novels, Oracle of the Thousand Hands and Screen are seriously-intentioned works which, according to the author, were neither fun to write nor fun in retrospect. Major influences on his work in no particular order are Norman Mailer, J.D. Salinger, Saul Bellow, James Agee, Vladimir Nabokov, Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Nikolai Gogol.

Not quite. The major major influences upon the author’s "seriously-intentioned” hardcover novels, as well as eight paperbacks done for the Olympia Press America between 1968 and 1973 were really: Jayne Mansfield, Natalie Wood, Hope Lange, repentance, desire, lust, resentment, ambition and the collected opi of the Four Coins, Four Preps, Four Seasons and the Belmonts. (Dion, too.) Heady stuff for the kid, though, writing for Nabokov’s publisher, citing Gogol and Dostoyevsky as influences; I recommend this experience to everyone having real or even slight pretensions to artistry.--The New Olympia Reader
