Brian W. Aldiss [[KnightFever OBE]] (18 August 1925 - 19 August 2017) is a British author, primarily of ScienceFiction, although he also wrote general fiction, and some non-fiction. His early works, from TheFifties, generally had a more literary bent than the typical SF of that era, and in the TheSixties, he joined the NewWaveScienceFiction movement, which promoted more experimental and literary forms of SF. His experimental novel, ''Barefoot in the Head'', is a fairly extreme example. He went on to write a wide variety of SF. His best-known work is probably the ''Literature/{{Helliconia}}'' series.

* GenerationShips: In ''Literature/NonStop'': A plague on a generation ship reduces the passengers to barbarism: they lose all idea of who they are or even what a spaceship ''is''. The bioengineered plants go into overdrive, turning the ship into a jungle, increasing the sense of obscuration and isolation. The reader's first clue as to what's going on is when the jungle turns out to have bulkheads.
