SF fans – a fascinating post and comment thread on the current state of science fiction, over at Eric S. Raymond's place.
I've been a science fiction fan since the '60s. In the last few years I've been mostly mining Amazon for past works that I've never read – because I found the vast majority of the modern works pretty, but uninteresting. ESR articulates exactly this, in a detailed way that I simply don't have the intellectual tools to do. In the process, he lists publishing houses and authors that may well provide me with a new source of reading material!
