On one of the Asimov's message board threads, Gardner Dozois mentions as an aside...
(some of the people who run slipstream-oriented sites seem particularly anxious to have SF die, so they can replace it with their own genre)
Can anyone name any semi-credible "slipstream" sites that want science fiction to die die die? (Remember those 80s coffee commercials, when they slipped in Folgers at restaurants? "We've secretly replaced...")
And what the hell is a slipstream site anyway? "Slipstream" was coined, pretty literally, as a joke back in the day, with a completely different meaning then it seems to have today. It has about as much relevance to a specific type of writing as "mainstream"; which is to say, close to none.
Anyway, this sounds like a very dastardly plot to kill SF. INVESTIGATION BEGUN.
