The Japanese are not planning to relinquish Hokkaido to its original owners, the Ainu. The tall, white and fair-haired Chachapoyas of the Andean forest have, alas, no remnants left to sue the Incas for genocide in a Peruvian court of law. However, even that great moral abyss of Western civilization — the Holocausts — stands out more in its industrialized and organizational features than it does either in the quality of its hatefulness or its relative or even absolute volumes.
In relative numbers, in just one year, , the Hutus and Tutsis in Rwanda, killed off a total of one million, in a population of 7 million.

Inscription on the back in German: There is a special horror attached to the Third Reich, because those were 20 th century Europeans, Christians, and in many ways the smartest, most civilized people on Earth. But the Holocausts do not prove that Whites are worse than other people, just that they are no better. The history of the Third Reich also proves that with the right formula of economic blowup, misery and humiliation, sparked by charismatic evil, no people are immune to such horror, at no time.
Our Norwegian correspondent The Observer sends his translation of an article and interview with two respectable high-profile Muslim leaders in Oslo, who have strongly negative opinions about Jews and the worldwide Jewish conspiracy. A new trend seems to have developed in the Islamic community in Norway: It should also be pointed out that this is the same mosque that the Norwegian police apologized so profusely to last year for the fact that we have freedom of speech in Norway.
The translated article from Dagsavisen:. Many Norwegians have a negative view on Islam due to Jewish domination of the media. We are visiting Central Jamaat-e Ahl-e Sunnat, the mosque with the largest member base in Norway, to talk to its spiritual leader.
The mosque was founded in and currently has more than 5, members. The Imam begins by explaining that all three heavenly religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, are sacred to them. Many people are unaware of this fact, says Sarwar. Both of them believe that the school visits confirms their views that Norwegians in general have an inaccurate impression of Islam and Muslims.
People are ignorant because they get their information from the media, and the media only write negatively about Islam. Only a handful of people were behind the movie about Mohammed in the U.

Yesterday a group of Al Qaeda terrorists assaulted a natural gas plant in Algeria and killed two foreigners while taking 41 other hostage. Today Algerian special forces staged a helicopter raid on the plant, killing a number of the hostages — between six and 34, depending on whose figures you believe — in the process of taking out the terrorists.
Among the foreign hostages were American, British, French, and Japanese nationals. In other news, Germany has begun repatriating its foreign gold reserves, which are stored in vaults in Paris, London, and the United States. The following article tells a brief tale about immigrant-on-immigrant violence in Cologne, with Muslims of immigrant background dealing it out and Russian immigrants as victims.

Cute Babysitter Experiencing Her First Painful Anal BangTwo criminal foreigners, free to terrorize their neighbors despite drug-related and violent crimes, killed a Turkish husband and father who tried to get them to behave. It happened in a sector of the city called Bickendorf — a district notorious for years for immigrant violence and bordering on the thoroughly Islamized Ehrenfeld.
But no one was killed. The Spanish government recently revoked his status as a political refugee in Spain, and he is due to be deported to Pakistan, where he will face the death penalty for blasphemy.

That means I am watching big, fat flakes accumulating on everything — though the driveway is still clear. Prior to that, we awoke this morning to heavy rains. It is our good fortune that there was never any period of transitional ice. Why am I talking about the weather, you ask? Since he is notable for having chosen the variant term scientifiction to describe this incipient genre, the stage in the genre's development, his name and the term "scientifiction" are often thought to be inextricably linked.
Though Gernsback encouraged stories featuring scientific realism to educate his readers about scientific principles, such stories shared the pages with exciting stories with little basis in reality. Much of what Gernsback published was referred to as "gadget fiction",   about what happens when someone makes a technological invention.
Published in this and other pulp magazines with great and growing success, such scientifiction stories were not viewed as serious literature but as sensationalism. Nevertheless, a magazine devoted entirely to science fiction was a great boost to the public awareness of the scientific speculation story.
Amazing Stories competed with several other pulp magazines, including Weird Tales which primarily published fantasy stories , Astounding Stories , and Wonder Stories , throughout the s. It was in the Gernsback era that science fiction fandom arose through the medium of the " Letters to the Editor " columns of Amazing and its competitors. Fritz Lang 's movie Metropolis , in which the first cinematic humanoid robot was seen, and the Italian Futurists ' love of machines are indicative of both the hopes and fears of the world between the world wars.
Metropolis was an extremely successful film and its art-deco inspired aesthetic became the guiding aesthetic of the science fiction pulps for some time. Writers attempted to respond to the new world in the post-World War I era. In the s and 30s writers entirely unconnected with science fiction were exploring new ways of telling a story and new ways of treating time, space and experience in the narrative form.
The posthumously published works of Franz Kafka who died in and the works of modernist writers such as James Joyce , T. Eliot , Virginia Woolf and others featured stories in which time and individual identity could be expanded, contracted, looped and otherwise distorted. While this work was unconnected to science fiction as a genre, it did deal with the impact of modernity technology, science, and change upon people's lives, and decades later, during the New Wave movement, some modernist literary techniques entered science fiction.
A strong theme in modernist writing was alienation , the making strange of familiar surroundings so that settings and behaviour usually regarded as " normal " are seen as though they were the seemingly bizarre practices of an alien culture. The audience of modernist plays or the readership of modern novels is often led to question everything. At the same time, a tradition of more literary science fiction novels, treating with a dissonance between perceived Utopian conditions and the full expression of human desires, began to develop: For some time, the science fictional elements of these works were ignored by mainstream literary critics, though they owe a much greater debt to the science fiction genre than the modernists do.
Yevgeny Zamyatin 's novel We depicts a totalitarian attempt to create a utopia that results in a dystopic state where free will is lost. Aldous Huxley bridged the gap between the literary establishment and the world of science fiction with Brave New World , an ironic portrait of a stable and ostensibly happy society built by human mastery of genetic manipulation.
In the late s, John W. Campbell became editor of Astounding Science Fiction , and a critical mass of new writers emerged in New York City in a group of science fiction fans many of whom soon became professional writers called the Futurians , which included Isaac Asimov , Damon Knight , Donald A.
Heinlein , Arthur C. Clarke , and A. Campbell's tenure at Astounding is considered to be the beginning of the Golden Age of science fiction , characterized by hard science fiction stories celebrating scientific achievement and progress. Gold and later Pohl as editor, and a new generation of writers began writing stories outside the Campbell mode.
George Orwell wrote perhaps the most highly regarded of these literary dystopias, Nineteen Eighty-Four , in He envisions a technologically governed totalitarian regime that dominates society through total information control. Zamyatin's We is recognized as an influence on both Huxley and Orwell; Orwell published a book review of We shortly after it was first published in English, several years before writing Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit , Ursula K.
Le Guin's The Dispossessed: An Ambiguous Utopia , much of Kurt Vonnegut's writing, and many other works of later science fiction continue this dialogue between utopia and dystopia. Orson Welles 's The Mercury Theatre on the Air produced a radio version of The War of the Worlds which, famously, panicked large numbers of people who believed the program to be a real newscast.
Inarguably, though, the idea of visitors or invaders from outer space became embedded in the consciousness of everyday people. The British did the same, and also asked authors to submit outlandish ideas which the government leaked to the Axis as real plans. Meanwhile, the Germans had developed flying bombs known as V1s and V2s reminiscent of the "rocket ships" ever-present in pulp science fiction, presaging space flight.
Jet planes and the atom bomb were developed. Asimov said that "The dropping of the atom bomb in made science fiction respectable. Once the horror at Hiroshima took place, anyone could see that science fiction writers were not merely dreamers and crackpots after all, and that many of the motifs of that class of literature were now permanently part of the newspaper headlines".
The period of the s and s is often referred to as the Golden Age of Science Fiction. With the emergence in of a demanding editor, John W. Clarke , and Robert A. Heinlein , science fiction began to gain status as serious fiction. Campbell exercised an extraordinary influence over the work of his stable of writers, thus shaping the direction of science fiction.
Asimov wrote, "We were extensions of himself; we were his literary clones. Campbell's guidance to his writers included his famous dictum, "Write me a creature that thinks as well as a man, or better than a man, but not like a man. Ventures into the genre by writers who were not devoted exclusively to science fiction also added respectability. Magazine covers of bug-eyed monsters and scantily clad women, however, preserved the image of a sensational genre appealing only to adolescents.
There was a public desire for sensation, a desire of people to be taken out of their dull lives to the worlds of space travel and adventure. An interesting footnote to Campbell's regime is his contribution to the rise of L. Ron Hubbard's religion Scientology. As Campbell's reign as editor of Astounding progressed, Campbell gave more attention to ideas like Hubbard's, writing editorials in support of Dianetics.
Though Astounding continued to have a loyal fanbase, readers started turning to other magazines to find science fiction stories. With the new source material provided by the Golden Age writers, advances in special effects, and a public desire for material that treated with the advances in technology of the time, all the elements were in place to create significant works of science fiction film.
As a result, science fiction film came into its own in the s, producing films like Destination Moon , Them! Many of these movies were based on stories by Campbell's writers. John Wyndham's cosy catastrophes , including The Day of the Triffids and The Kraken Wakes , provided important source material as well. At the same time, science fiction began to appear on a new medium — television.
In The Quatermass Experiment was shown on British television, the first significant science fiction show, though it could also be described as horror. Seeking greater freedom of expression, writers started to publish their articles in other magazines, including The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction , If magazine , a resurrected Amazing Stories , and most notably, Galaxy.
Gold and then Frederik Pohl , Galaxy stressed a more literary form of science fiction that took cues from more mainstream literature. It was less insistent on scientific plausibility than Campbell's Astounding. The rise of Galaxy signaled the end of Golden Age science fiction, though most of the Golden Age writers were able to adapt to the changes in the genre and keep writing.
Some, however, moved to other fields. Isaac Asimov and several others began to write scientific fact almost exclusively. Until about magazines were the only way authors could publish new stories. Only small specialty presses like Arkham House and Gnome Press published science fiction hardcover books, all reprints of magazine stories.
Most genre books were sold by mail from small magazine advertisements, because bookstores rarely carried science fiction. By the small presses proved that demand existed for science fiction books, enough to cause magazines to print regular review columns. They issued fixups such as The Martian Chronicles , novel versions of serialized stories, and original fiction.
Demand for content grew as the specialty presses had depleted the supply of easily reprinted, high-quality stories; new genre magazines appeared 38 different science fiction publications existed in the US and UK in ; and large-circulation magazines like Playboy , Collier's , and Esquire published stories.
Genre stories like Walter M. For the first time an author could write science fiction full time; Barry N. Malzberg calculated that producing 1, words a day would earn twice the national median income,   and Asimov stopped teaching at Boston University School of Medicine after making more money as a writer.
The mainstream book companies' large print runs and distribution networks lowered prices and increased availability, but displaced the small publishers; Algis Budrys later said that "they themselves would draw little but disaster" from the science fiction boom of the s they helped to begin. In the former all sense of place and time are dispensed with; all that remains is a voice poised between the urge to continue existing and the urge to find silence and oblivion.
The only other major writer to use "The Unnamable" as a title was H. In the latter, time and the paradoxes of cause and effect become thematic. Beckett's influence on the intelligentsia—as well as the general influence of existentialism and the legal battles to publish books then classified as obscene—made science fiction more sophisticated, especially in Britain.
Burroughs — was the writer who finally brought science fiction together with the trends of postmodern literature. With the help of Jack Kerouac , Burroughs published Naked Lunch , the first of a series of novels employing a semi- dadaistic technique called the Cut-up and postmodern deconstructions of conventional society, pulling away the mask of normality to reveal nothingness beneath.
Burroughs showed visions of society as a conspiracy of aliens, monsters, police states, drug dealers and alternate levels of reality. The linguistics of science fiction merged with the experiments of postmodernism in a beat generation gestalt. In , British novelist Kingsley Amis published New Maps of Hell , a literary history and examination of the field of science fiction.
This serious attention from a mainstream, acceptable writer did a great deal of good, eventually, for the reputation of science fiction. Another major milestone was the publication, in , of Frank Herbert 's Dune , a dense, complex, and detailed work of fiction featuring political intrigue in a future galaxy, strange and mystical religious beliefs, and the ecosystem of the desert planet Arrakis.
Another was the emergence of the work of Roger Zelazny , whose novels such as Lord of Light and his famous The Chronicles of Amber showed that the lines between science-fiction, fantasy, religion, and social commentary could be very fine. Also in French director Jean-Luc Godard 's film Alphaville used the medium of dystopian and apocalyptic science fiction to explore language and society.
In Britain, the s generation of writers, dubbed " The New Wave ", were experimenting with different forms of science fiction,  stretching the genre towards surrealism , psychological drama and mainstream currents. The 60s New Wave was centred around the writing in the magazine New Worlds after Michael Moorcock assumed editorial control in William Burroughs was a big influence.
The writers of the New Wave also believed themselves to be building on the legacy of the French New Wave artistic movement. Though the New Wave was largely a British movement, there were parallel developments taking place in American science fiction at the same time. The relation of the British New Wave to American science fiction was made clear by Harlan Ellison's original anthology Dangerous Visions , which presented science fiction writers, both American and British, writing stories that pushed the boundaries of what was acceptable in a science fiction magazine.
Isaac Asimov, writing an introduction to the anthology, labeled it the Second Revolution , after the first revolution that produced the Golden Age. The New Wave and their contemporaries placed a greater emphasis on style and a more highbrow form of storytelling. They also sought controversy in subjects older science fiction writers had avoided.
For the first time sexuality, which Kingsley Amis had complained was nearly ignored in science fiction, was given serious consideration by writers like Samuel R. Delany , Ursula K. Contemporary political issues were also given voice, as John Brunner and J. Ballard wrote cautionary tales about, respectively, overpopulation and apocalypse.
Asimov noted that the Second Revolution was far less clear cut than the first, attributing this to the development of the anthology, which made older stories more prominent.
