This is a first cut at classifying authors by rough period/movement -- generally when they began significant work. (In many cases, their work continued on for many years, through many 'periods') This is, of course, open for discussion and change.
Science Fiction Nineteenth Century
(mid 20's - late 40's)
(late 40's - mid 60's)
Arthur C. Clarke ( ArthurCeeClarke)
Philip K. Dick ( PhilDick)
(mid-60's - 70's)
Well, a lot of ScienceFictionLateTwentiethCentury ? authors are still at it.
