Nancy Kress fait le point sur son blog sur ce qu'elle écrit, notamment sur la nouvelle qu'elle écrit pour le magazine TECHNOLOGY REVIEW
"Fiction explores this point through all sorts of subsidiary questions: What is worth expending effort on, struggling to obtain, sacrificing other things for, maybe even dying for? In writing classes, this question usually gets lumped under "character motivation": What does the protagonist want, and why? But the question goes deeper than characterization. It informs the story as a whole, by indicating whether the goal was worth it or not. The protagonist who dies to save his family: worth it, the story implies. The protagonist who dies "trying to become a tyrant over the Empire: not worth it. In this way, stories affirm or attack human values."
