Folks, if you are a science fiction fan, read science fiction as escape when you were a kid, grew up loving the genre more than anything, you will want to listen to and read the words for this wonderful song Janis Ian wrote for the SFWA Awards this year.
Janis used her classic song melody, and the words show just how much she loves science fiction. Kris has both the song and words, with permission, up on her site, so go there and listen. Janis Ian’s Song for SF Fans.
If you are a true sf fan, if you were one of those kids traveling with the greats to their wonderful worlds to spend a few hours out of your own world, if those books and stories seemed more real to you than your own world at times, it will be impossible to listen to this song and not tear up.
When someone gets it, someone gets it. Go listen.
