Beim Guardian findet sich ein exklusiver Auszug aus „A Man without a Country“ von → Kurt Vonnegut: → Hollow Laughter. Darin beschreibt Vonnegut auch seine Anfänge als „SF-Autor“:

Most of our critics are products of English departments and are very suspicious of anyone who takes an interest in technology. So, anyway, I was a chemistry major, but I’m always winding up as a teacher in English departments, so I’ve brought scientific thinking to literature. There’s been very little gratitude for this.
