Logan's Run

Logan's Run - William F. Nolan, George Clayton Johnson The book is slightly better than the movie, which isn't saying much. I recognize that some of this wasn't so corny in the late 60's/ early 70's, but the "consider the times" excuse will only excuse so much bad writing. Philip K Dick wrote ingenius, unique, innovative science fiction at the same time as this work, and his stories have stood the test of time much better. In defense of Logan's Run, there is some redeeming social commentary about the "youth culture", and the extremes of environmentalism and the "zero population growth" crowd.
