Science Fiction, at its best, is the literature of ideas. I spent much of my teenage years pouring over brittle, yellowing SF anthologies – chock full of invention. Concepts like fireworks, burning briefly and brightly, then gone. Or, sometimes, jettisoned into the orbit of the morphic resonance field to one day re-enter the atmosphere, burn out and return in some mutated Hollywood form. It’s brilliant to see this outlet for lost concepts. Fair play to them.
