One of my writer heroes, Dan Simmons, whose novels have included horror, contemporary, SF (space opera primarily), and crime fiction, was not expecting the outcry that followed his April Message. It’s a pretty compelling short-short story, frankly, and terrifying in its way. Naturally, once you read it, you may find yourself agreeing with his fans. Read the May Message before you jump on any bandwagons. His forums have since turned into infernos, so to speak, crackling with charges of xenophobia and the like.
I hate to post and run, but I’m formulating a more substantial post on this.
