Science fiction predictions XIX

Charlie Jane Anders, Episode: 110: The Future of Pizza and Other Listener Questions:

“I guess my final thought is that we need to kind of let go of this idea of predicting, which is always a kind of anchor that’s hung around the neck of science fiction writers in particular and just be like, we’re telling stories about what’s happening now. We’re kind of thinking about how things could get worse or weirder or whatever. But we’re also kind of just coming up with metaphors or ways of thinking about the present that kind of put it at one remove so that we can actually look at it.”
