Well, Richard Pinhas (AKA Heldon) has used a couple of SciFi titles for a
few of his compositions, but they have all been instrumentals, so this
probably doesn't count. He did have Norman Spinrad "sing" on "Houston 69"
off of EAST-WEST (man. I just thought of a new "Golden Throats" idea,
singin' sci-fi authors!!! I can just imagine a duet between Spinrad and
Moorcock! I think I may need therapy....)
