The New Scientist have interviewed six sci-fi authors about their thoughts on the future of science fiction. I've not read the article as yet (only got the email notification about it and am at work - maybe at lunch though...) but the authors interviewed are Margaret Atwood, Stephen Baxter, William Gibson, Ursula La Guin, Kim Stanley Robinson and Nick Sagan.

sounds like an "old guard reviews the genre" piece

I haven't read it yet. but thanks for sharing the link..
it should be interesting considering, only ONE of those authors listed is a self confession sci-fi writer, the others prefer to be known as 'speculative fiction' writers.

Reminds me of the anecdote Neil Gaiman repeats regarding 'honest whores' and 'Ladies of the night'..,
