A Quote From Gregory Benford


“Mostly I daydream. I use that well-known effect, whereby when you get in your car at the end of the workday, unless you stay alert, your hind-brain will drive you home. I do a lot of plot juggling then. Basic ideas often come as I wake up. I lie around, faking sleep, and drift through cobwebbed corridors, poking at heaps of junk that might yield some old iron pot or oily rag. Useful, all. Why not have X do Y to Z? a voice asks, and so I do just that, next time I’m punishing the keys.”–Gregory Benford
