For the love of books.
I don't know, reading this short story has gotten me to start re-evaluating the man. It's cheap fear-mongering of the Rush Limbaugh-kind.I'm still hoping it's some kind of exercise in reproducing the deep-down buried fear of Islamic invasion - cultural, as well as physical - that western conservatives have been espousing (less loudly, and much more subtly) for the last decade.
That's an interesting story/essay. It's fairly heavy handed, but I still love Simmons novel length fiction, politics aside. And then again...who knows.
