It has been said that the book contains lapses of logic. I agree. Some things in it just don’t make sense. And then there’s the weird science. That’s the part I like. In fact I love weird science wherever I come across it, not just in my own writing.
When it comes to weird though, nothing beats reality. No matter how strange, entertaining, or funny, science fiction is, reality is stranger, funnier, and more entertaining. And I’ll prove it to you. Every day in December I’ll post a new entry on the weirdest thing I come across in the world of science. I’m not just talking about glow-in-the-dark puppies or downloadable brains. I’m talking about things like scientists manufacturing the perfect-sized raindrops to bomb mosquitoes with. Just to see how they react. (see photo above from the Oct. 29 issue of New Scientist). No science fiction writer can possibly top stuff like that. The world is full of it and you’ll find out about it right here, every day in December.
