I, like Cat Valente, am confused by notion that a science fiction story can be too autobiographical to be fiction. Um, no. I can’t even really add to what Cat says here because there’s nothing extra to say. This notion is silliness.
I would never have written Elan Vital if I was under the impression that there was a hard separation between my life and my fiction. Black Feather as well.
Like I said. Silliness.
