Phildickian Prose

A great quote from Robert Guffey's article "White Noise: Don DeLillo's Postmodern Autopsy of the Twentieth Century" in the current issue (September 2007) of The New York Review of Science Fiction...

If one accepts the notion that science fiction is the simulation of a future that hasn't happened yet, then perhaps mainstream fiction could be considered the simulation of a present that will never exist.
