 - it's possible to have an SF future that's not just "Yanks in Space";
 - computers are not necessarily the way it will go;
 - women can be a political force;
 - current emnities may not last forever, in the face of new ones.

Gwynne: It's possible that with the older works we may not recognise all the
ways they influenced the genre, because they were so effective that the changes
they presented are now a regular part of the scene.
