you think you've got problems doctor?

You know, it's only just occurred to me that I'm totally not interested in writing what most of science fiction's narrower old-school critical audience seems to me to be reading for, which is the quote unquote big idea SF.

I'm interested in science fiction as a vehicle for literature, which is to say, I'm interested in using its tropes and metaphors and structures to talk about people, and tell stories. 

That's a nice thing to realize, actually. Very freeing. 

And now, back to the goddamned coal mines.
