I have always been intensely uncomfortable with the idea of a science fiction writer as prophet. Not that there haven't been science fiction writers who think of themselves as having some sort of prophetic role, but when I think of that, I always think of H.G.

Oh, now, now, now, the only now, and above all now, and there is no other now but thou now and now is thy prophet.
Allen was like a prophet of the 1960s.
