Old Pier Bookshop, and have attended Lancaster Zen Group.
It is getting late. I will try to post less often late in the evenings because it seems to interfere with sleep patterns. After this post, I will read and maybe take notes for posting tomorrow.
Meanwhile, let us reflect on the range of issues raised by the works of Poul Anderson and of related sf writers and discussed on this blog:
theism, Buddhism, secularism or a synthesis?
a hereafter or not?
extraterrestrial intelligences and civilizations or not?
future Artificial Intelligence or not?
cosmogony and cosmology;
reasons for the rise and decline of civilizations;
the optimum society for human beings? (freedom and diversity, at least);
the origins of life, civilization and science;
literary traditions in sf;
the art of writing fiction;
adaptations from prose to visual media;
Or, to put it another way: everything.
Be here tomorrow, folks.
