A Brief Note to Young Writers of Science Fiction

.


Children, this is what science fiction used to look like.  This is what it used to sound like.  This was all a long, long time ago.

Your task is twofold:

1. You must write something as powerful as this.

2.  You must write something much better than this.

With love,
Unca Mike

P. S. Keep it new, y'all!

Is that what you're doing?

My fallback for classic SF look and sound has been either 2001: A Space Odyssey or Ursula LeGuin's The Lathe of Heaven and its 1980 made for PBS adaptation.

So far, I have been unable to write anything nearly as powerful or as good, but I keep trying.

Thanks!

The mind is a great philosopher. And life is not a philosophy, life is a reality. And philosophy is an escape from reality; philosophy means thinking. Life is, there is no question of thought. You can simply jump into it. You can simply experience it. Visit my site for more information.Thank you.
