I love this guy. Check out all his cartoons at TomGauld.com.

  5. Great Cartoon. Philip K. Dick defies the chasm between SF and literature. His work is collected in a Library of America bound edition (NYT says”quasi-official national canon” of American literature”) and he ranks #52 on Amazon among SF writers and #87 among literary writers.

  10. Reblogged this on Tim Higgins and commented:
    As a fan of both Sci-Fi and other fiction, I found this quite amusing.
    Interstingly, there is a definite growing trend in novels taking a more Sci-Fi approach, or incorporating more fantastical elements into their plotlines (or is Sci-Fi trying to open itself to a more mainstream audience?).
    I’d take Asimov over an owful lot of ‘literary fiction’ anyway 😉

  12. Well, of course, Nabokov had this one right as well when he said there are no schools of literature: “there is only talent.”
