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.
