    Once the common man is used to technological change as a fact of life, literature whose main point is awe and wonder or fear of technological change will not stand out.

    Truly weird.

    lots of assumptions here about what a man will be 20-30 years from now in a world undergoing constant technological change.

    Will it even make sense to call her common? Or even man?

    Anyway i think a more interesting discussion should not be “if there will be Sci Fi in the future”….but if there will be any need for Sci Fi writers.

    Why do i need some person to entertain me when i have a box that can grow cool yarns of fiction on the fly?

  2. “Matt Cheney is wondering if there exists a drug-themed science fiction anthology.”

    Not a full-blown hardcover anthology, but On Spec magazine did an addictions theme for its winter 2004/2005 issue. “Addictions” covered more than just drugs though.

  3. Since I’m in the first paragraph of the story, I felt I had to blog about it. Not about the more global issues brought up in Ms. Jones’ article, but more focused on the personal.
