Robert Sheckley Quotes


30 Robert Sheckley quotes:

"I was forever reading outside of the field as well as in it."
"I would like to do a novel where some curse turns that into how the world really is - a blessing or a curse, I don't know which."
"I'm not so interested any more in how a great deal of science fiction goes. It goes into things like Star Wars and Star Trek which all go excellent in their own way."
"I'm quite influenced in this by one of my heroes, Montaigne, who thought a man's real task was to render as honest an account of himself as he could."
"It takes me a long time to get with a landscape. It took me 20 years before I wrote anything about Ibiza, and I haven't written about Oregon yet, although I've been there 20 years - possibly I'm almost due."
"Science fiction is very healthy in its form."
"So I wrote what I hoped would be science fiction, I was not at all sure if what I wrote would be acceptable even. But I don't say that I consciously wrote with humour. Humour is a part of you that comes out."
"The British audience was very important to me. I have always looked away from American to non-American audiences and so this was important."
"There's no sense going crazy over this stuff. Short stories help me with that, since you can do a story in anywhere from one day to a week."
