I don’t know about you guys, but I definitely think science fiction has a place in literature. You’ve got H. G. Wells, Aldous Huxley, George Orwell, and (sort of) Ayn Rand (I’m thinking mostly of Anthem here) already representing the genre–and I would think most people would consider the works of these authors “classics.” I know that at least for me, I enjoy both genres equally, but for very different reasons. I’ll generally read “literature” if I want something that I can sort of linger over and take the time to really absorb; but if I want a quick, fun, fast-paced read I’ll go for something science-fictiony (or horror/thriller/etc).
Also, I just think the cartoon is adorable.
Hope those of you who are Stateside have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! Those of you who aren’t, I hope you have a good weekend as well, and sorry it’s not a 3-day like ours 🙂by
