* TheGreatPoliticsMessUp: The 1991 novel ''Russian Spring'' was overtaken by events within months of its publication. The novel was an extrapolation of the events that actually led to the fall of the Soviet Union, but predicted a more gradual, on-going evolution and opening-up. As the old guard of Soviet leaders continued to age and die, a new generation of young Russians became adept at working around the restraints of what was left of Communism, and started a cultural and artistic renaissance that soon became the envy of the rest of Europe, while America became increasingly insular and stagnant.

Norman Spinrad is a controversial American writer of SpeculativeFiction who came to prominence during the NewWaveScienceFiction movement. One of his best known (and most controversial) novels is the award-winning ''Literature/TheIronDream'', about an AlternateReality where AdolphHitler became a writer instead of a dictator, and wrote a horrific fantasy reflecting his prejudices. The book won an award in France, but was briefly banned in Germany. His works are often filled with sex and drugs and other counter-cultural themes, and he's frequently had trouble getting them published as a result. ''Literature/BugJackBarron'' was condemned on the floor of the British Parliament, and a recent novel, ''Osama the Gun'', was self-published on the Internet after he was advised that no American publisher would touch it.

He wrote an episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'', "The Doomsday Machine", and an episode of ''Series/LandOfTheLost''. He is also a former President of the Science Fiction Writers of America.
