Re: Is SF in a state of exhaustion?
1. SF/F that is more culturally diverse with more new foreign writers is the best most welcomed trend EVER.
As far as I'm concerned the more translations of international SFF, the better. I have some Kobo Abe around here somewhere that I picked up on the strength of his cinematic collaborations with Hiroshi Teshigahara.
