Jack McDevitt est en interview ici
sur le net. Il parle de la SF
"You said you've made an effort to improve literacy among young people, by introducing them to science fiction, which was more palatable to them. What is the place today of science fiction?
Jack McDevitt : I think it's less accessible for kids today. It's tougher to read. It's more of a challenge. And I'm not suggesting that we need people to do some science fiction that's specifically for kids. I think science fiction that is accessible, not only to kids but to readers who are not necessarily science fiction readers, is a good idea.
I'm not sure why it's become so complex in so many ways. You know, some of the themes will get involved in what societies are going to look like 25 years from now, when it's a completely computer generated age. And it seems that that kind of thing is of interest, I would think, to people with specialized concerns. You know, the general reading public wants a good story and not a treatise on some kind of technical advance. If that makes sense.é
