But Jack and his friends—some of whom lost family on what has become known as Doomsday—know that the reality is very different. A peek into their closet won’t reveal anything like non-regulation clothing, or a small box of Christmas decorations, or a bookshelf with fiction novels, or posters of pretty girls tacked to the inside of the closet door. Rather, the category has a prototype "apple", and things are recognized as fruits to the extent that they are either (a) like an apple, or (b) like something that has already been sorted into the "like an apple" category.

Bacigalupi first visited KU when his story, "The Calorie Man," won the 2006 Sturgeon Award. As a young boy this book fed my imagination for sci-fi. For a story which takes place 600 years from now, it is as bad as no background at all ....van Vogt has not bothered to integrate the gadgets into the technological background of his story'' (#23 55-56). And there are very good magazines that don't appear on this list at all ( Nature's "Futures" series, Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet, Daily Science Fiction, Flash Fiction Online, Abyss & Apex ...).

Riddley's quest, his journey to Canterbury in search of answers, "connexions,'' and the "Littl Shyning Man,'' takes him through broken buildings and broken machines littering the countryside, but leads him to no real answers and no real knowledge. The now common theme of a motley band of survivors combing vacated cities for food and water has been copied endlessley. Quite a few science-fiction films took an Earth-bound tale and transported it to outer space: High Noon (1952) became Outland (1980), The Magnificent Seven (1960) was spoofed in Battle Beyond the Stars (1980), Enemy Mine (1985) was essentially a remake of Hell in the Pacific (1968) with Lee Marvin and Toshiro Mifune, and the chariot race of The Earliest Science Fiction Films: Many early films in this genre featured similar fanciful special effects and thrilled early audiences.

Tromvi trudged up the hill from the harbor, where she had just packed the last of her trade goods into the hull of a ship heading to the east. Using a technique which combines live actors with props and backdrops designed to resemble 19th century illustrations tells the story of an evil man who wants to control all the world. While not as evidently prescient as Huxley or Orwell, Zamyatin explores a potential extrapolation of the Soviet ideal. The next time you are in the Los Angeles area, please come visit; after all, this store was created just for you!
