  •  Hartwell totally takes SF too seriously (4+ / 0-)

    Himself?  That was never my experience with him.  I love the guy...wish I'd kept in touch better.

    But he is absolutely, totally serious about hard SF.

    To make the argument that the media has a left- or right-wing, or a liberal or a conservative bias, is like asking if the problem with Al-Qaeda is do they use too much oil in their hummus. Al Franken

    •  OK, I think that's what I meant about Hartwell (2+ / 0-)

      I didn't mean to cast aspersions on his personality (I've never met him).

      •  He laughs easily, even at himself. (2+ / 0-)

        But when it comes to hard sf -- or even soft sf -- he is totally serious and a complete professional.

        I miss him.  He gave me my first job in publishing.
