...Science seems to throw off all this upon her younger sister, Sociology, or even upon the deplorable Urmutter of us all, Human Nature...

 Hal Clement (1922-2003) - SFWA News
Harry Stubbs, better known to science fiction readers as Hal Clement, passed away in his sleep early in the morning on October 29th.
He was a professional scientist and teacher BECAUSE he was a fan of science -- but to him the value of science lay in how it affects people on the deepest psychological levels.
Decades later, in the 1990s when I started writing science fiction, I realized that Hal had the same effect on me at cons: no matter how bad a con otherwise was, if Hal was there, being there was worthwhile.

Once upon a time, the community of English-speaking science fiction readers and writers had an uncanny resemblance to the present community of people engaged in working with and on hypertext fiction.
Both of them were themselves science fiction writers as well as critics, or what John Cayley has called "critic-practitioners".
To sum up, the protocol of excessive candour transformed the field of science fiction [1], and it's likely that a similar protocol would invigorate hypertext criticism.
