June 13, 2014, Friday evening -- Reading Brian Aldiss

Near Farringdon Station (in London, England, where I'm on vacation)
Walking, while reading Hothouse, by Brian Aldiss. It was a present from someone who knows what he likes to read.  It's set in the distant future, at a time when plants have taken over the earth and the remaining humans are threatened by extinction.

His favorite author is the Scottish writer Iain Banks, who also writes Science Fiction, and who had an asteroid named after him shortly after he died in 2013.  
I wonder what other authors have asteroids named after them.

The Bronte sisters, among others, also have minor planets named after them.
