Read a really interesting interview at with best-selling author Dean Koontz about visionary fiction, which I call transformational fiction. Here’s a quote:

“If visionary fiction is indeed a school of writing, and if it isn’t torn apart by conflicting political forces within it (there are always conflicting political forces), then I think it has every chance of gaining attention as a legitimate and major form. To have force, it needs to avoid elevating emotion over reason, as New Age did; it needs not to lose its way in the nanotech evangelism of futurists like Ray Kurzweil; and it needs to avoid forming around people with the announced intention of aggressively transforming the world, because therein lies the danger of messianic delusion.”

Well expressed, Mr. Koontz.
