High Velocity Super Disco

An occasional selection of writings pertinent to our day and age, including musings on the arts, music and culture, politics and religion, ninjas and comics. In fact mostly ninjas and comics when I think about it...

Tuesday, January 9

Quote of the day

Comes courtesy of the one Mr Warren Ellis, from his latest Bad Signal;

"if you honestly think a speculative fiction magazine shouldn't be attracting people interested in new ideas and new art, you're in the wrong business"

Referring of course to this and this.

He has a point of course, why else would Bruce Sterling write a column for Wired?

Or; is this indicative of a (further) split between the written and visual worlds of SF?

Or; is this why more SF and fantasy writers are starting to write comics?

Damn! Knew I should have just let the quote stand on its own...
