Science Fiction can take a lot of somewhat less expected forms. Kurt Vonnegut's bucks aren't really SciFi, or are they?

If you've read them you'd know about the Tralfamadorian concept of time. A thread of literary thought that runs through his books - has always run through his books and will always run through his books.

The border between fiction and science fiction is rather vague - you will come to the place you want to be. Try to make sure it is like yourself and not like anyone else. Like food - you need to sample food from various chef's to get various tastes - but that's only to give you tools for your own recipes.

Ravings en masse^
"The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits." - Albert Einstein
"If you are searching for perfection in others, then you seek disappointment. If you seek perfection in yourself, then you will find failure." - Balboos HaGadol Mar 2010
