SF Tidbits for 1/20/08

  • The World in the Satin Bag interviews Karen Miller, author of The Awakened Mage: “…in writing fantasy I get to play with the best of both worlds – larger than life events and themes, a splash of magic, and a chance to explore humanity from a slightly skewed perspective.”
  • Clive Thompson on Why Sci-Fi Is the Last Bastion of Philosophical Writing: “If you want to read books that tackle profound philosophical questions, then the best — and perhaps only — place to turn these days is sci-fi. Science fiction is the last great literature of ideas.”
