New Yorker goes Science Fiction

The June 4-11 double issue of the New Yorker Magazine is a scorcher.  The self-styled “Science fiction issue” features prose by Ursula K. Leguin, Jonathan Lethem, William Gibson, Margaret Atwood and more, and, to top it off, it sports a Daniel Clowes cover and an Adrian Tomine illustration in the back.  Wow!

    Can you explain the joke (if there is one) of the cover drawing? I cannot figure it out. 🙂

  3. Well, I guess it’s Science Fiction, traditionally regarded as one of the “lowlier” genres, happily breaking through the walls and boundaries of the fine arts and civilised society. Laser pistols ftw!
