Subject: science fiction, what's that about, then? (part whatever it is)
Security: Public
Location:the utility room in the sky
Some time ago, back before the PreCambrian Explosion, when it was just me and Jean Marie and Selkie and the (even then sadly-LJless) OJM rattling around here, with occasional interjections by Lou Anders and brisingamen and peake (remember those days, guys? Before all these boisterous folk started moving in?) I posted a few rather clumsy and embarrassing rants about the state of science fiction today and my rather namby-pamby views on it.
Well, I'm indebted to Neal Asher for pointing me at this article by Richard Morgan (whose novel Black Man I'm currently enjoying enormously) which addresses a few of the points I sort of approached but veered away from. I think the man talks a lot of sense. Any thoughts?

This can also be seen on internet fora, where there is a procession of uninformed people and teenagers asking the same damn questions. Every generation has to work out that being a moron isn't cool, funny, or the way to win friends and influence people.
(Unless you can get on TV in which case anything goes)
