@hypirlink i just remember that bit solidifying so much about why heinlein/asimov/etc always kinda turned me off
last bit on le guin and then i'll probably go read 'very far away from anywhere else' tonight: I've always loved this bit from foreword she wrote for "Roadside Picnic" ( the novel the movie STALKER was based on)
