Thought-Provoking Science Fiction
My favorite quote about science fiction novel writing
"I believe science fiction should encourage people to think. God knows we have enough forms of amusement that discourage or actively prevent rational thought. Even in most of contemporary literature (and a growing percentage of science fiction), the emphasis is on emotional reaction rather than rational thought. Science fiction is the home ground for the thematic novel today; science fiction can and should be for the thinking reader."
—Ben Bova, from The Craft of Writing Science Fiction that Sells
