A Final Answer to the Question of Questions: Is Science Fiction Dying?

4 Comments

No, it is not.  Now shut up already.  The next person who raises this question, even if they’re going to say “no” in their response, will get an unwelcome at-home meeting from me and my polystyrene robot.

Yes, the robot has a ray gun, and before Adam comes along and tries to tell me that a ray gun isn’t science fiction without an explanation for its power source, I’m going to say that it is powered by the tears from everyone who said George Lucas ruined their childhood with the prequel movies.  That’s about as science fictional as you can get.
That is all.

  1. You know what, I love this post. I might blog about the death of SF just to see if you do come at me with that polystyrene robot. That would be a YouTube moment, right there 😛 x
