After all, I will argue that Starship Troopers is proto-MilSF.

Brin's system of sorting SF from F will produce counter-intuitive results, like Asimov's Foundation, which is all about restoring the Old Order What Stood for Thousands of Years, is fantasy, whereas any Diskworld novel about clackers and the post and dwarves and trolls learning to coexist is SF.

(it's important to note "Having said that, what is my definition of the separation?". Brin's definition, not THE WORD OF MIGHT DEGLER HIMSELF)

Except for the traffic accident, obtaining my shiny new ResMed AirSense 10 Elite CPAP was pretty painless. And cheaper than the previous machine. Excellent service from Medigas.

I got the weird feeling the sales person had a customer whose cats turn the CPAP off.
