Brain Aldiss, famous sci-fi writer, diesBrian Aldiss, one of the most prolific and influential science fiction writers of the 20th century, has died aged 92.

Literary agency Curtis Brown said Aldiss died Aug 19 at his home in Oxford, England.

Born in 1925, Aldiss served in India and Burma with the British Army during World War II.

He later became a bookseller, publishing his first stories in a trade magazine.

Aldiss’ 1969 short story Supertoys Last All Summer Long was an unrealized dream project for the late Stanley Kubrick and formed the basis for Steven Spielberg’s 2001 film A.I.

Sandman author Neil Gaiman called him “a larger than life wise writer.”
