Science fiction extrapolated I'd at least learned that word from the facts of science, and it was not for me.

What I was doing was playing with the fancies my conception called up, wanting only to tell a story, and having no notion in the world of "attacking scientific rationalism"1 or of attacking anything, come to that.

Or so I believed then. And there, as to definitions, if I must think of them, is where I still am, no doubt, when asked to consider these two genres as separate categories, while realizing very well that the line between them if there is a line is blurred.

The Mushroom Planet Series

Yes, you know it's blurred, says my reasoning. And, yes, I've read Robert Scholes' Structural Fabulation and have to admit that he has something there.

Now kindly get on with your dinner. At midnight of the day they deliver the ship, the boys blast off. The hour is set by Mr.

Bass' calculations, and he is sorry for it. Nor do the boys sneak out their windows; he insists they ask their parents' permission, which to the boys' surprise is given.

The flower is that things unsnarl in this adventure; the leaf is that there are many touches of magic unrealism, to reverse an expression. Of course the boys do not sleep through midnight, but get up and go. On Basidium they meet Mebe and Oru, who would be the King's wise men, as they are called, if they were wiser.

But they are painted lovingly, as is everyone in this book, another gem. The king, Ta, proves dignified, gracious, and intelligent.

He could easily have been made contemptible — a king! But Cameron has imagined what her characters need be if they are to do what her story tells.

There are strange plants and clothes. There is trouble, which Mr. Bass has sent the boys to relieve.

Then home. There is a reason Mr. Bass could not go himself. He had other fish to fry.

And there are touches of fantasy. Some are brushstrokes that make Cameron's painting what it is.

The Wonderful Flight to the Mushroom Planet

In the first sentence we see David reading Dr. Dolittle in the Moon , which A. Sirois rightly finds a telling detail. Those who do not know that book get from the title alone something of David and his household; the rest, a sign. There in particular among Hugh Lofting's tales of a fantastic naturalist is a great deal beyond the possible, but it too is grounded, they all are as we see with a double-take, in science. John Dolittle knew animals' language because he learned it by observing them.Rather than enjoying a good book with a cup of tea in the afternoon, instead they are facing with some infectious bugs inside their desktop computer.

Let's look at Flight. We since have been giving the Golden Duck Awards to s-f written for children.

Little, Brown and Company. Why not get one of the big airplane companies? That is, they can squeeze through tight spots and can even slip through a captor's hands--or arms, at any rate.

Bass, who keeps saying "precisely" although he confesses he is like a cook who can't tell anyone else afterward just how he did it.
