I’m very pleased to see BBC Radio 4 doing a season of SF, under the banner, and much trailed, title of <a href=”http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b02v1q2n/features/about” target=”_blank”>Dangerous Visions</a>.
But really, is it so terrible to admit that this is a series of science fiction plays and stories?
They’re not ‘fables for our times’, they not ‘dystopic visions’, Ballard didn’t write ‘speculative ficiton’ – it’s all SCIENCE FICTION.
I’m being interviewed by someone from the BBC about science and science fiction tomorrow. I think I might ask them.
