Science Fiction Is Trying To Imagine A Way Out Of, And After, This Time Period [AUDIO]

Tobias S. Buckell: “Nora K. Jemisin  was just saying on Twitter the other day that in science fiction we have this venerable tradition of using metaphor to dig at some of these problems—like race and power and structure and history—and that it’s been a mistake, because in the past we would always use the metaphor assuming that our fellow readers and fans of the genre were following along, getting the metaphor, and it turns out that they weren’t. In other words, you needed to be way more in-your-face.” – Wired
