But when David Moles says And then in the 80s and 90s we got the progressive version, where the Apocalypse sweeps away capitalism and frees a multi-ethnic, gender-balanced tribe of plucky artist-craftsfolk to live by barter and mutual aid, no longer alienated from their labor, I am not sure what books he has in mind.

I guess Spinrad's Songs from the Stars might count. Despite its 1980 publication date, I seem to have it filed away in my head as a late 1970s product.

I am:
Arthur C. Clarke
Well known for nonfiction science writing and for early promotion of the effort toward space travel, his fiction was often grand and visionary.


Which science fiction writer are you?

Our simulations couple a semi-analytic model to a full N-body integration to follow the growth from ~3x10^21 g to the final planetary system configurations that generally consist of 3-5 planets with masses of order 0.1 - 1.0 M_earth in or near the habitable zone of the star.

Planets close enough to dim stars to be potentially habitable will generally be tide-locked. This does not preclude habitability but it probably will make for interesting weather as heat is transfered to the dark hemisphere.
