The biggest mistake to me is complacency.
What keeps me up is always raising the bar, and what makes my team happiest and also most worrisome is I'm always asking for more.
Sci-fi is speculative fiction. 'Field of Dreams' is sci-fi.
'Farscape' is a fabulous vehicle for looking at ethical, moral, political, and social issues.
I'm a big believer that sci-fi lives in literature, that the true sci-fi population is out there reading a gazillion authors.
You can't trademark the word 'sci-fi.'
