Subject: Brian Aldiss, science-fiction writer, dies aged 92

Written By: Philip Eno on 08/22/17 at 7:21 am

British science-fiction author Brian Aldiss has died at his home in Oxford, having only just turned 92. His death was announced by his literary agents Curtis Brown, who called him an "author of science fiction classics" as well as "an entertaining memoirist". Aldiss's short story Supertoys Last All Summer Long was the basis for the 2001 film AI Artificial Intelligence. Developed by Stanley Kubrick, the tale of a boy-like robot was eventually directed by Steven Spielberg.
