Is Science Fiction A Genre In Crisis?
Its problem "comprises the generic-ness from which the label genre stems: in this case, the outdated stylistic tics and aesthetics of a marginal pulp-modernist medium, the clich├ęs, the well-worn assumptions and comfortable call-backs, and the outdated institutional values in which they were nurtured and framed."
