  1. Brin’s deconstruction of Star Wars, however, quietly hides the fact that he injects his own politics and political views into his own SF novels, sometimes to choking effect.

  2. Of course, John could have pointed out in the Brin link our review of Star Wars On Trial. The opening statements by Brin are an expansion of his thoughts from the 1999 article.

    And I have to agree with Paul, at least as far as On Trial is concerned. The people attacking Star Wars have a difficult time keeping their politics out of their essays. In some cases that’s ok, in others, not so much. But it was still a fun read.
