"There's no real objection to escapism, in the right places We all want to escape occasionally. But science fiction is often very far from escapism, in fact you might say that science fiction is escape into reality. It's a fiction which does concern itself with real issues: the origin of man; our future. In fact I can't think of any form of literature which is more concerned with real issues, reality."

Arthur C Clarke

hurrah! SF is the best way to think about what can really happen, or how what already is happening will pan out. Good to know I'm not the only SF wacko..........
