“Post-human” Science Fiction


There have been a number of interesting treatments of the “step beyond man” in science fiction. I am less familiar with recent work in the field than I am with classic science fiction, as will be obvious to those familiar with the field. Recommendations for additional items are solicited. The works of Stapledon, Clarke, and Heinlein are particularly recommended.
