Who is the most outrageous and imaginative scifi writer in the world?

Today’s best search term to reach my blog was “most outrageous and imaginative scifi writer in the world”. Which of course leads me to ask the question, who IS most outrageous and imaginative scifi writer in the world? Outrageous and Imaginative. That’s a killer duo of adjectives to combine. I’m going to put my thinking cap on. Who would you suggest?

      1. Maybe Fain, Rebel at the End of Time, Bigot Hall, Slaughtermatic? Lint is good as a bio OF an outrageous and imaginative writer …

    1. I’d have to agree on Aylett. Warren Ellis has done some interesting scifi stuff within comics, but the sheer wildness of Aylett’s prose and imagination hit the outrageous button.

  1. Kelly Link, Karen Joy Fowler, Nnedi Okorafor all came to mind for various reasons. For sheer impact, not sure why people don’t think of Ursula K. Le Guin or Stanislas Lem.
