The mood of Fourth Millennium

April 15, 2007

If that last quote rather nicely encapsulated the mood of Thousand Suns, this quote, also from Ensign Flandry, encapsulates much of the mood of Fourth Millennium:

No, son, we’re mortal — which is to say, we’re ignorant, stupid, and sinful — but those are only handicaps. Our pride is that nevertheless, now and then, we do our best. A few times we succeed. What more dare we ask for?

We need more Poul Andersons in SF today.
