Ask Slashdot: Most Underappreciated Sci-Fi Writer?

Strange_Attractor Re:James P Hogan (1130 comments)

I always point to "Inherit the Stars" as a great example of the way science and the scientific method really work. It's a blast, too.

Verhoeven's Starship Troopers was only dullwitted if you ignore its entire point - a venomous satire of propaganda and groupthink.

Strange_Attractor Re:what kind of word is this? (174 comments)

You should check out the Austin Lounge Lizards' song "Big Rio Grande River" (Amazon link, has audio samples if you use one of the supported players), just about the last word on this sort of repetitious, redundant, reiterated, and redundant circumlocution.

Oh, and "Grunge Song" on the same album (Never an Adult Moment) is pretty great, too.
