"What people like and what critics praise are rarely the same thing. 'Critic' is just another one of those unnecessary, overpaid, parasitic jobs that the human race has churned out so that clever slackers won't have to actually get a real job and possibly soil their hands." Sauron
reminds me of a few books the libraries used to have that featured all sorts of artwork and concepts of what the future might look like...it's weird looking back on them today, with a mix of nostalgia, recognition of what things actually turned out true, and those which are still a long way off or even unlikely!
Some of those books were actually just compilations of scifi pocketbook artwork, and someone threw a loose fiction to match the artwork. Others seemed to be commissioned by futurists and corporations looking to show off what they thought our future might look like, what cars and kitchens and aircraft of the future might do. Many of the medical predictions actually came true 10 and even 20 years ago!
