  1. It is also of curious note that Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Heinlen, Issac Assimov, and Stephen King all had non-existent or significantly conflictual relationships with their fathers. In most of their writings that I am familiar with, there is consistently a male ‘father figure’ who is unaffectual or downright evil. Compared with Ray Bradbury and Gene Roddenberry, who describe their childhoods as stable and loving, there is always an element of the force of good can and will somehow overcome, no matter how dire the circumstances. It seems that horror and science fiction writing continues to be a way to express anger at father figures.
