My name is JP Frantz and I help run a science fiction oriented website called SF Signal (www.sfsignal.com). We have a recurring feature we call a Mind Meld where we ask a single question to a cross-section of the science fiction community, and others as the question warrants, and post all the responses together. (See http://www.sfsignal.com/archives/cat_interviews/mind_meld.html for examples.) If you are interested and have the time to answer, our question this week is:
Do science fiction authors have an obligation to be scientifically accurate with their stories? Is there a minimum level of accuracy an author should adhere to?
If you'd like to respond, our deadline this time is next Wednesday (5/22) around 9pm CT. I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you for your time,

Sorry to have missed this one, JP! I was traveling and have not caught up with all these messages. Hope it went well.
I went and checked it out. Some interesting commentary and responses.
