Kim Stanley Robinson is the 2016 winner of the Robert A. Heinlein Award, given for “outstanding published works in science fiction and technical writings that inspire the human exploration of space.” His latest novel, Aurora, is probably the most brilliant effort ever to kill the dream of escaping Earth once and for all. I have not seen a better exemplar of Santayana’s Warning since the organization that began as the National Organization of Nonparents changed to the National Organization for Optional Parenthood and then campaigned to outlaw childfree housing.
