The Thin Red Line
I lied; we have some SF today after all. Meme Therapy has posted another Brain Parade, this one about whether the "thin red line" between SF and fantasy is worth maintaining, and I'm one of the people quoted.
SF/fantasy writer. English professor. Episcopalian. Licensed lay preacher. Hospital volunteer offering spiritual care in the ER. Spinner, weaver, knitter.
And a few other things, less easily labeled. The title of this blog is a phrase John Clute used to describe the plots of my first two novels. It both amused and annoyed me, and I finally decided to reclaim it as a badge of honor. Would you prefer rickety contrivances of doing bad?
