Reno SFRA, June 1993 ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Science fiction writers speak on the theme of "the Imaginative Future." Frederik Pohl sees the future as a collection of possibilities for us to shape in the present. James Gunn gives a historical overview of "the literature of change," showing H.G. Wells as an example of those who affect the future. Stan Robinson argues that our future will be a nightmarish urban industrial world unless we engage the problems of overpopulation and overdevelopment today. Lisa Goldstein discusses the future of imaginative writing, saying that fantasy should be revolutionary and subversive. Joan Slonczewski says that education must become a matter of learning to solve problems rather than memorizing facts. Karen Joy Fowler asserts that the U.S. used to believe in progress but now locates the Golden Age in the past. Keith Ferrell gives examples of ways to solve future problems. Poul Anderson argues that technological developments and individual rambunctiousness will devise new entertainments in the future. Other highlights include an interview with Guest Artist Rodney Marchetti and short takes of JoAnne Pransky (robot psychiatrist), Paul Joseph (Star Trek law commentator) and Mel Seescholtz (cryogenics chronicler)
