    Did you mention that it subverts tropes and shit? Critic types love that sort of thing.

    I actually didn't enjoy Simmons work all that much, I thought it appealed to a very different demographic and I just wasn't it.

    I'd much rather read Asimov or Clark and even they had a few wobbles as far as time and literary trends go. It's best just to let the old-timer make his way out stage left. Gretas doing great just ignoring the naysayers and keeping the momentum of the movement. I was nowhere near as "woke" at 16 or even 30 and I am thoroughly impressed.

    Does anyone know any good scifi books tackling the issue of Climate change? I cant think of anyone other than Ursula K LeGuin.


    I might be wrong, but I think some of Kim Stanley Robinson's work also deals with these issues. Could be worth looking into.

    Dan Simmons has been that way for a long time, but I didn't know that Asher was one of those twats too.

    Other way around for me. I knew Asher was a climate change denier, but I didn't know about Simmons.


    Simmons also has a really egregious history of racism, xenophobia, and other alt-right opinions that he's been quite un-shy about sharing for the last decade or so.


    I've since learned about this, but before his attack on Greta I had no idea, none whatsoever. Fortunately, I have no real interest in his work, so I needn't worry about trying to justify reading it.

    I'm not on Facebook, but some folks I follow on Twitter are reporting that Dan Simmons has had a little "moment", posting some criticism of Greta Thunberg on his page. I'd be interested to know the crux of his diatribe/rant/grumble if anybody could share.


    Never mind; I found some excerpts on Twitter. Generally, he didn't like being shouted at by a "bratty" teenage girl who "knows nothing about climate or climate change or science".

    EDIT: Here's the post in full. Greta, Simmons says, has been a naughty little girl who should be put in the time-out corner where she can think about the way she talks to adults.
