Brunner I'd agree, but I'd tend to see Anderson and (especially) Mack
Reynolds as libertarian rather than leftist.  (Ditto with Heinlein in _The
Moon Is A Harsh Mistress_.)  But this may be a matter of perspective, Brit
vs. USAmerican.

Then again, which I suspect is more likely, I may just be entirely wrong.
I'm working with thirty year old memories here.
