The future, one thing at a time
Clarkesworld is up, and with it an article I wrote in which I argue against Campbell's Law ("the future doesn't change one thing at a time".) This has been percolating for a long time, ever since I was quoted that law during a critique of one of my stories many years ago. The critique, as it happens, was entirely right, but I never entirely bought into the general argument behind it... so hang onto those grudges, kids, they just might pay off someday!
