stories of now

The US science fiction writer Kim Stanley Robinson is guest editor of this week's New Scientist. He writes a piece himself on stories of now:

the literature that best expresses our time, that speaks to our time, is science fiction. How could it be otherwise? Our world is a science fiction.

This is important, because you need the literature of your time. You can't get the meaning of our life in 2009 from historical fiction, nor from science alone.
