James Palmer's Journal - Day

8:06PM - Getting to the bottom

I have more information about my previous post on James Gunn's plans to revitalize SF. Sensing I could maybe get an article for The Internet Review of Science Fiction out of this, I emailed Mr. Gunn. Apparently, the news release exaggerated things a bit. According to Gunn, SF is more popular than ever, but it's fandom that he says needs a good shot in the arm. His plan involves hiring someone to work in his Center for the Study of Science Fiction as some sort of coordinator of volunteer efforts across the country. Let's just hope he gets someone intelligent with good organizational and leadership skills, instead of a pile of applications from hygiene-challenged fanboys whose list of dream jobs include working at a comic book store and volunteering at a convention.
