Rant

Moratorium

No science fiction author is to write any work involving online games until they have been dead for 28 years.

1 The games or the author?

2 Both.

3 Who burned you?  Walter Jon Williams just did a pretty good murder-mystery about that stupid craze from about six years back that featured large-scale email-style interactive puzzle-rollplaying. I'm not sure if it qualifies as science-fiction, since the only thing even remotely implausible is a rogue HVT widget which strikes me as more of a "five-minutes-into-the-future" than real SF.  Especially since nobody's really talking about what exactly happened last May with that five-minute crash in the US markets.

4 I was reading the monthly newsletter from Galaxy Bookshop here in Sydney.  Greg Egan, Ken MacLeod, and Walter Jon Williams all have books out this month with the same basic premise, and that's just from the authors I was actually looking for.  Charlie Stross did it recently too.

So the new rule is, unless your name is Philip K. Dick, the topic is off limits.

5 How about movie adaptions ? Could we declare a moratorium on adaptions of P.K. Dick ? Have you read Daemon by Daniel Suarez ? I've just started it. Pretty good so far.
