The Myron Appreciation Society

It seems that many listeners were bowled over by Myron Ebell's BBC radio interview on the 4th of November, and spontaneously written in after the program. I hope there are some other blogs coagulating from the smoke which are worthy of linkage. This guy deserves a fan club as much as Douglas Adams. Here's a question: If you write fiction that people believe is true, does that make you a better writer than one whom everyone knows made it all up? Perhaps it's something to do with honesty. Like Douglas, Myron's fiction rests on the premise that when everything goes tits up on Planet Earth, we can simply Hitch-hike away into the Universe. Either that, or surf the tide of economic progress to some place exactly like where we are right now, only much, much better.

The Myron Ebell global appreciation movement has even made waves in the Mother of Parliaments in the form of Early Day Motion 1881. For those who don't know what this means, it's a Motion that is scheduled be debated on the floor of the House on the Earliest Day available, after hell freezes over.
