Philip K and Jane C

Image taken from the documentary “The Penultimate Truth”. I add, on the day following the original post, that I was reminded of this anniversary by the lovely essay, “Bummed Out And Ugly” by Alice Sola Kim, which is invested with a passion that is intimate and vulnerable, qualities that we do not often associate with science fiction, the rigid alien machine of literature. I usually avoid linking now to anything on Buzzfeed (this is not caprice or upturned noseness, but for the very solid reasons that can be found in “BuzzFeed’s Benny Johnson: Gorgeous Animus”), but there are times when principles descend into mere pettiness.
