I guess some of this depends on what you mean by=20 "younger generation." Many of the '60s/'70s "New Wave"=20 writers are technically younger than Wolfe. I'll assume you mean someone who came along after, say, William Gibson. Unfortunately my chronology isn't that good, right through here, so you'll have to excuse me if I stumble on this. Some names that might go into a reasonable hat -- people who, while not "imitation Wolfe" in any sense, share at least one or two of the virtues that I associate with=20 Wolfe: o Karen Joy Fowler o Neil Gaiman o Peter Hamilton o China Mi=E9ville o Pat Murphy o Matt Ruff o Mary Doria Russell o Robert J. Sawyer o Connie Willis=20 o David Zindell Just some thoughts... --Blattid --
