Genrenomics!

Paul Krugman shows his genre street cred with shout outs to Charles Stross and other writers of sf where the science is that dismal one. I think he’s right about Beyond This Horizon, too–not one of RAH’s greatest hits.

An old paper of Krugman’s about interstellar trade was making the rounds a month or two ago, so I guess this should be no surprise.

Now all the movement needs is a manifesto and some abusive squeaky snarklings willing to do battle on its behalf.

    Ah yes, I read about the snarklings a few weeks back and only yawned a few times. I amazed sometimes at the passion people have.

      Yes–I don’t object to the passion so much as the posturing. But I suppose without a good share of both we wouldn’t be human. Can’t figure out if that would be a good thing or not…

    Whatever you do, don’t let Krugman and in the same room. Fandom ain’t big enough.
