Sometimes science fiction should be a little bit fun. It isn’t always, which I’m glad of. I recently wrote a guest post over at sfsignal about how good sf is at warnings. Which it is.
But some days I’m happy we know how to have fun. I had a long drive this week, and as usual I listened to Starship Sofa. As usual, the Sofa was great (if, also as usual, long!). But it’s worth listening to. I just loved the Ben Bova story, “The Man Who Hated Gravity.” It’s not a straight up comedy or anything, but it also doesn’t take itself too seriously. And being by Bova, it’s well-written.
