SF for creative minds

A talk by Neil Gaiman, writer.
(I recommend his book American Gods.)
Interesting point: the Chinese are opening the doors to science fiction because they found out that the the Westeners who were inventive and creative read SF and fantasy when they were young! (And probably later too.) And the Chinese recognise that though they are very good at copying things, they really need more inventive minds.

I wonder what restrictions the Chinese have placed on various authors. Heinlein is one that I wouldn't be surprised if they rejected it. Orwell is definitely out.

If oil paintings are your choice we do oil paintings and other types of oil paintings.
