More on the death of science fiction

Here's an article claiming SF isn't dead. The evidence? Large numbers of fantasy writers. A great example of Damon Knight's famous non-definition of SF: 'SF is what we point to when we say it.'

I've noticed a couple of these types of article since the big Kincaid review of last year. You can feel the panic in lines like this: 'Recently, it’s become fashionable to agonise about the Death of Science Fiction, and hardly a week passes without some commentator declaring its demise.'

I'll be returning to this topic soon, misanthropy fans!

Amazing video of Alan Moore from the 80s

From Bleeding Cool, a DC promotional video from 1984. Alan Moore talks about working on Swamp Thing and this new idea he's got called 'Watchmen' that he's currently working.

How young he looks!

I know it's been quiet here for a while. Suffice it to say I've been working away, so hang in there. I'll be back.
