The Future Gives Some People Hives

Illustration for article titled The Future Gives Some People Hives

"There is a very small subset of the population who are incapable of reading or watching any story that does not take place in the present... But these people are a minority. I’ve come to view their condition as being akin to a food allergy. I will leave them alone and not bother them with my world anymore or chase after their respect or worry at their opinions. But for the majority of us, SF&F is so pervasive in all our media, not to mention in our vocabulary and our lives, that it is becoming silly to draw distinctions. We all respond to good stories well told." — Fast Forward 2 editor Lou Anders, interviewed by Jeff VanderMeer for Omnivoracious
