Frederik Pohl should be a Man Plus, resign from disgraced Authors Guild

“Take a man. Make him more than a man. To save the world… or risk destroying it.”

After a holiday lull, the legal battle over the proposed Google Books Search settlement (GBS) has resumed, as an important February 18th federal court hearing approaches. Although I’m just a casual science fiction fan and have no stake in the settlement, I respectfully call upon author and SFWA Grand Master Frederik Pohl to transform himself into a Man Plus by resigning as Midwest Area Representative to the disgraced Authors Guild and adding his name to fellow author and Grand Master Ursula K. Le Guin’s growing list of genre writers opposed to the proposed settlement.

Pictured: Pohl's Man Plus, well-equipped to help Le Guin fight her GBS devil.
