Reading Recommendation: The Man Who Hated Gravity, by Ben Bova

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.

    I tend not to write a comment, but after reading a ton of responses here Reading Recommendation: The Man Who
    Hated Gravity, by Ben Bova – Brenda Cooper at Brenda Cooper.

    I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s okay. Is it simply me or
    does it appear like a few of these comments look like
    they are written by brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if
    you are writing on additional sites, I would like to follow
    everything fresh you have to post. Could you post a list of all of your shared sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or

    Adsense is actually a really great program for those who maintain blogs, as blogs get updated
    all the time and the Adsense possibilities are almost limitless.
