Agreed that Science Fiction generally is in the doldrums, and it seems fairly obvious that this is likely to continue until such times as it is necessary for an author to write really good stories in order to sell them. While we have the present spate of second rate magazines - and this includes most of those preserstly published, including the much vaunted GALAXY - trading on the boom, few authors are going to be bothered taking .the time or the trouble to write really first class stuff, when they can sell the easily written 'rubbish'.
