Topic: Doris Lessing awarded the Nobel price of literature ....

And the funny thing was; earlier today, before the announcement, I said to a colleague: "Who cares abt the Nobel price in literature anyway? No SF-writer will ever get it anyway!" And until this year I've still more or less always followed the announcement with interest, since 1984.

But what happens, an "obscure" British SF-writer gets it and also mentions Greg Bear's Blood Music as a great influence! :)

She nows joins the roster of William Golding and Rudyard Kipling, both writers of science fiction, of course! Doris Lessing is hardly obscure, however. She's one of the most well-known and influential writers in the last sixty years.
