I’m currently reading The Year’s Best Science Fiction #23 edited by Gardner Dozois and in his always-comprehensive summary of the year, Gardner yet again lays to rest the false claim the science fiction is dying. This is the same defensive stance he’s taken in many, many previous volumes.
I bought into this claim that sf is not dying. There’s no reason to think it is as far as I can see. But who, exactly, is saying that science fiction is dying? All I ever see are people saying that sf is not dying as other claim. Who are these “others” of which they speak?
A quick Google search shows that Orson Scott Card is (or was) one back in 2001. Is that it?
