Let ’em talk

Samuel R. Delany on writing science fiction: “I had nothing else to do, and it was fun.”

Wells Tower on nature and revision: “A male moose will jump into the lake with the idea that a female moose is on the other side, and then he’ll get to the other side . . .” 

George Scialabba on conservatism: “It may be a delusion, as Conquest repeats endlessly, to imagine that state power can ever create a just society. But one reason some people are perennially tempted to try is that private power is generally so comfortable with unjust ones.”   (From Scialabba’s new book.)
