They have emerged from the chaos of an after-the-holocaust world and have reached a stage of organized community life, farmlands, and a strict and stern inflexible morality based on a dark, incomprehensible fear of an unknown past. But the Mahabharata is way beyond the obvious. If one has a predilection of literacy, and if the Lord so leads, one can write speculative fiction. It seems like every decade or so a science fiction novel comes along that sends a lightning bolt through my nervous system: Philip Jose Farmer’s To Your Scattered Bodies Go (1971).

PN3433.8 P54 1987 Vol. 1 of a useful three-volume history of SF treated by theme. When we read Jonathan Franzen’s Freedom, which is framed around the history of Patty and Walter Berglund’s marriage, we (rightly) expect that by the end, whether the relationship itself survives, Patty and Walter will come to better understand their own roles in the relationship and its problems. A Science Fiction writer should never put beings into a story that are so far superior to men that we cannot understand their motives, we cannot overcome their will or we cannot meet them face to face in a fair fight.

Talk about a jaundiced view of your fellow citizens. He looks at the social, technological, and literary forces that influenced the genre’s authors, and in doing so tells an entertaining story – the story of science fiction!

Like so many others on this list, the suspense of the story would be compromised with too much revelation of plot. Fiction writers employ a variety of characters while weaving their tales. Scoville was also the subject of his grandson Luke Dittrich's recent nonfiction book, Patient H. A radical take on sexuality, and the roles of men and women; this early sf text challenged presumptions and sexual stereotypes through its three female characters. Gibson didn't know squat about computers when he wrote that.

Rules 6, 8, and 9 have been stated (in different words) by SF editors for years, so if you write and submit stories, you may have been reminded of them in rejection letters. Leo watched them go, the poor little drycleaner trying to be a high roller. 22 The passage is funny and insightful, crisply conveying to us exactly what Chili thinks of Leo, and at the same time also casting light on Chili’s own arrogance and prejudices.

A question put to such a list will not only generate a wealth of personal responses, but a list of URLs where you can find more information.
