More leisure time for artists everywhere

Relevant to some of your interests (and mine), via the Twitter feed of Mr W Gibson, a blog post about IGY by Donald Fagan http://www.sjef.nu/what-a-beautiful-world-this-will-be/
linking to an article by Fagan himself about SF http://donaldfagen.com/writing_items.php?itemID=133 (not particularly new, you may have already been aware of it). This contains, amongst many other things including a discussion of Van Vogt and General Semantics, the (possibly well known?) story of Bester meeting Campbell, which reminds me to remind you that Bester's non-SF novel Who He? aka The Rat Race is well worth reading, it is a psychological thriller set in the early days of TV (I know I have mentioned it before) drawing on Bester's career writing for radio and television.
