Stop! This is not a complete list and was never intended to be such a long list. I have stopped temporarily only because I am not, at this time of night, finding any title that was published in 1992. The list so far shows:

(i) the dates of two important discoveries that underlie all subsequent sf;
(ii) the date of Superman who started as sf although he initiated a new genre (his alien menagerie is comparable to the one in Anderson's "Hiding Place" (1961));
(iii) for comparison, the year of my birth (blog readers can add theirs);
(iv) an unbroken record of Poul Anderson publications from 1951 until 1991 - and there was more after that.

  1. Kaor, Paul!

    There were indeed works by Poul Anderson pub. in 1992. In fact, works of his were pub. POSTHUMOUSLY till 2004.

    I would have included this in your list: "1926 Birth of Poul Anderson."

    I think YOU, as well as Sandra Miesel, has become the most prominent "go to" commentator on the works of Poul Anderson.
