Random thought… There are “graveyards” of aircraft, in places with low humidity, where the birds wait for being decommissioned or taken back into service. These areas have low real-estate cost and low-corrosion weather.
Can the same be achieved for books and other paper-based archives? Some makeshift long-term low-cost low-deterioration storage where the materials can wait until the political climate gets more friendly?
This is so sad.
No respect I tell ya.
Because what would be the possible value in a form of literature that literally dreams the future up?
So many ideas have shown up on the pages of SF long before someone figured out a way to make them reality.
Maybe we can replace all this “futurist” garbage with some good old historical religious fan-fiction!
In reading the article several times I don’t see many names and none at all for the person or persons apparently responsible for this dismal state of affairs. As the editor of a long-running amateur press association (30 years and counting) which has been sending a copy of each issue to the Eaton Collection for a good many years, this is a matter of considerable concern.
