Living with a sci fi writer can be tough on the civilians.

27 Aug

a recent conversation that took place in my house:

my wife: No, I mean it’s good, but I just wonder if this story about a little girl dying of cancer on an alien world is appropriate for an anthology that wanted happy, positive sci-fi stories.

me: but it’s a happy story about a little girl dying of cancer on an alien world. Besides, the co-editor? I just read an awesome story of hers that ended with DETAILS OF ENDING DELETED TO AVOID SPOILERS.

my wife: wow … so I guess all of you scifi writer people are that dark. It’s not just you.

there should probably be a support group somewhere….
