. . . which I wasn't, but this is so COMPLETELY connected to the whole ball of wax I've pondering so intently the past few days that I've got to pass it along. A project that aims to learn about how literature influences science and scientists. As the "what this is about" note points out, typically the interest goes the other direction (how does science influence literature?). Take a look. Good stuff. Again: Do we live in interesting times or what?? (And if you're missing the connection between this, genre writing, science fiction, fantasy, the turmoil in contemporary writing/publishing, well, really: there IS a connection. At least in my mind.)
Back to work.
