public likes science

Have you heard? Apparently there's a new wave sweeping the U.S. called Science Cafes. Wired Magazine says Science Cafés Tap Nation's Fascination With Research and Discoveries. What does that have to do with speculative fiction writing, you ask? It means there is an audience for science fiction stories! Send us yours!

In other news, I'm sorry to say, Congress does not like science. Read more about it at Science: A Budget Too Small. Now there are some folks who need to read more science fiction!

A little more info to put this in perspective:
"This is probably the worst budget for science that anyone can remember," says Michael Lubell, a spokesman at the American Physical Society in Washington DC. "It absolutely devastates and probably wipes out American high-energy physics."
