Pohl

I just remembered something else Frederik Pohl did. At a 70s Milford conference a new writer named Gustav Hasford brought in a work of military sf. Pohl suggested he redo it as mimetic fiction. He did so and called it The Short-Timers, and in his editorial role, Pohl bought it for Bantam. It was then filmed as Full Metal Jacket.
