Andrew Klavan writes a bit of science fiction for the WSJ:
“Well, we have your doctor’s recommendation,” says the chairwoman in a friendly tone. She peers over the top of her glasses as she pages through your file.
You have to clear your throat before you can answer. “He says the operation is my only chance.”
“But not really very much of a chance, is it?” she says sympathetically. Over time, she’s become expert at sounding sympathetic.
Read it all. Like much science fiction, it could be reality. That’s what makes it work. And no, I do not find this to be incendiary or fearmongering. For a bit of that check out Ban Ki “we have four months to secure the future of our planet” Moon.
