Well, so Wolfe is now apparently out of date!
         I think 100 years from now, all our SF will be seriously out of 
date. Conventional SF works in terms of theories about the universe that 
are just that: theories. Better: myths. Can anyone seriously believe that 
humanity has done more than just scratch the surface of the reality of the 
universe? We cast out grids, paradigms, myths, that seem to make the most 
sense of the data we know. How much don't we know? We've not been at this 
very long.
         That's why I like SF much more than I like PBS. SF is literary, 
fun, mythical. PBS always seems to think the latest word is also the last word!
