Don't Bite the Sun
Don't ever believe anyone who says that science fiction used to be shallow and pulpy and pointless. DON'T BITE THE SUN reads like it was published yesterday--like it would be difficult to publish yesterday because it's so literary and strange. The only thing dated about it was the ambient belief in a future without scarcity, which is actually exactly what I wanted to read while sitting in a folding chair in my front lawn under the sunflowers. I thought it was a delight, and a nice ballast to all the climate change stories I've been reading.
