Who wants to write a Superversive Story?

The author L. Jagi Lamplighter Wright, wife of Sci Phi Contributor (hey I think that is a pretty important thing!) John C. Wright has an interesting new essay out called Holy Godzilla of the Apocalypse: or How to Identify a Superversive Story. Go read the whole thing, but the three most improtant aspects of a Superversive story are

  1. Most importantly a Superversive story has to have good storytelling.
  2. The characters must be heroic.
  3. Superversive literature must have an element of wonder

I think she is right and i’d like to see a return to this sort of story telling. I’m hoping you find at least some of the stories in Sci Phi to be Superversive in nature because they are normally good tales.
