Darko Suvin said that sf is “cognitive estrangement.” Robert Anton Wilson said it’s “straight-faced bullshit.” I’m sure there are subtle differences between the two definitions, but that’s not important now; it’s a tension between opposites. SF that emphasizes the straight-faced part has traditionally been called “hard” sf, but that term has become entangled in controversy. So how about plausible science fiction?

Thanx to File 770

Thomas Pynchon seen (or not) from Brazil. Time to confess that I think of Against the Day as something I slogged through and lived to tell about, and I haven’t tried The Bleeding Edge for fear that it’s his Golem100.

Thanx to Metafilter

Babel-17 put a space opera, a meditation on language and communication, alternate sex/love arrangements, and a fascinating protagonist into under 200 pages.

Thanx to Tor.com.
