CHICANONAUTICA DOES AN ANCIENT CHICANO SCI-FI WISDOM POST-GAME SHOW

That's right, I talk about my class at UC Riverside's Writers Week over in Chicanonautica, over at La Bloga, and here we're doing something a little different.

I got to see some stuff from the Eaton Collection of Science Fiction and Fantasy:


Here's some more about the Eaton Collection:


And there's a whole YouTube playlist!

I also took some pictures in Riverside that didn't make it into the Chicanonautica piece: 

Here's the Mission Inn parrots:


Some flowers, that aren't far from the parrot cage:


And a nearby fountain:


And a statue of Frank Augustus Miller, founder of the Mission Inn, with a parrot:


Back at the Eaton Collection, this ancient Colombian printing press would make a great steampunk/alternate universe prop:

  1. For me science fiction is unrelated to social alienation and is, to me, really more about expanding the potential experience base of humans and then seeing what happens. It is "good" if it makes me think in unaccustomed ways (while being entertaining). It differs from fantasy in that it is forward looking, often non-zero sum, and often breaks traditional social conventions.

    1. I guess some of us have been more alienated than others.
