I was thinking about this in the train station in Manchester. I once wanted to be a science fiction author, an ambition I sometimes secretly reconsider. But these days, they only publish what seems like one or two science fiction authors. It was always a nice job, but now even more so. "In print, books rely on scarce shelf space, gatekeeping agents and editors, and expensive production." Just one more strike against books - and to me, the critical one.
