TFW I eagerly go through a list of recent ‘SF titles you should read’ to find I’ve read all of them but one, that I threw aside. TFW years ago I realised all new SF I was reading (except the space operas) was based on extrapolating tech I was actively tinkering with myself, that I had caught up with SF’s starting points. The realisation a bit later that it meant I could contribute to shaping it, and make SF happen in reality sort of.
