as a Subgenre of Sci-Fi
January 1, 2017
the real literary/intellectual/emotional/activist fruits of the genre term won't turn up until 2030, 2050, 2080, even as far distant as 2100.
These things take time.
This was from the get-go a longterm literary project, and I knew the time frame longterm and that I wouldn't be around
to see the genre's fruits bloom and blossom in the culture at large in future times.
Still, I know I did a good thing, a useful thing. And yet I still have to wonder, in all honesty, will what I did end up having been useful -- or useless?
Time will tell.
