New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 6, 1987, New Braunfels, Texas Entertainment Friday. February 6,1987    Herald-Zeitung, New Braunfels, Texas    Page7AAuthor says science-fiction books important CHARLOTTE. N C (AP) - Like a multi-armed life-form uprooted from Venus and brought to Earth for an autopsy, science fiction would die if it were accepted by the literary establishment, says Orson Scott Card. "The last thing we want is to be captured by the same people who killed literary fiction,” said Card, a Greensboro resident whose novel Enders Game this year won theDear Abby Hugo and the Nebula — the top two national awards in science fiction. "We're shaping the future and they're not.” Card, 35, said most modem literature dwells endlessly on the same theme — "the contemporary angst, the midlife crises of professors in second-rate colleges ” He said this type of novel developed in the 1930s and has been beaten to death in literature classes ever since "That’s the death of literature — professors teaching children how to think.” By contrast, he said, science fiction has an unlimited choice of theme and setting, it continues to evolve and it is read voluntarily by interested readers Card said science fiction, more accurately called speculative fiction, has matured beyond its gee-whiz. "Buck Rogers” origins It now explores a complex range of humanCrossword thought, although it still draws strength from its rocket-blaster roots. Yet it continues to get hostile readings from many scholars. "It’s definitely a snob thing,” he said "There’s a widespread belief that anything that sells well and can be read by people without Ph.D.s can’t be any good.” Card defines science fiction as fiction set not necessarily in the future, but certainly somewhere outside the Man Who Sowed Wild Oats Needs to Explain the Harvest DLAR ARRY l our yours ago whit** I was still in rolled' I got ,i young woman (older than Ii prig naut Marriage    was out    of    the question, but    I    faced up    to    m\ responsibility    and agreed    to    pay child support    I    have miiu    moved 500 miles away and have been paying child support ever since Now the problem I’m in a new area with new friends and peers, and nom are aware ut my pa- I have fallen in love with a wood* rf ii I young lady and w. re talking marriage She IS not man ot this episode in my life. and as v\e move closer to marriage I don’t know what to say or how to sav it lh»w should I go about letting her know about my past mistake ’ I just can't find the words ( HICK IIN DEAK CHICKEN: Try this: "When I was in college I fathered a child by an older woman. Marriage was out of the question, hut I faced up to my responsibility and agreed to pa\ child support.” Be prepared for some followup questions such as: "Have you ever seen your child?” "Do you plan to have a relationship with this child?” And many mote. Your future wife has the right to know the extent of your involvement, and the sooner you tell her, the better.

CHAVERRI L TENOR IN CHOENIX DEAK TENON: Brayers won’t help. Your choir director is suffering from "hy perhidrosis” — excessive sweating. He should consult a family physician, dermatologist or endocrinologist (gland specialist) — ail or none of whom may he able to help him. Sweating is a natural function that can be controlled to some degree by medication, but some possible side effects could he worse than sweating, in which case it might be healthier to just sweat it out. DEAU ARRY: I apprec iate your alerting readers t*» various dangers — the most recent concerning children riding on escalators Several years ago you cautioned readers who stored their old refrig era tors in their garages or base" ments to either turn the refrigerator with the door facing the wall, or to remove the refrigerator door so that small children could not crawl into them and have the door close behind them and suffocate to death Recently, three young children we re found dead stored in a barn w ,irnmg It could in a refrigerator ’lease re peat that save lives CUNI ETTA ( It RITI EKE EE SRI K< DEAK ( ONI ETTA:    I    hanks for t lie reminder. < Her the- years I have published this warning many times, and I am grieved when I read that this type of accident has oc curred again.
