MARCH 3, 2019: "PLUTO TELLS ALL" BY John Scalzi

Recommended Posts

Please join us for our next chat in  #readers_corner at 8:30 P.M. (EST) March 3rd, 2018 -- 01:30  A.M. (GMT) March 4th -- for a discussion of "Pluto Tells All"  by John Scalzi.

This story is a somewhat tongue-in-cheek examination of the decision by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) Accepted by the U.S.Committee for Astronomy and Astrophysics to redesignate Pluto as "a dwarf planet".  If celestial bodies could talk, what would they think of arbitrary decisions about their status?  This story answers that burning question.  My best description of the tale is -- as in the words of my sainted grandmother -- "It's a hoot."

The story is available on line at:  https://subterraneanpress.com/magazine/spring_2007/fiction_pluto_tells_all_by_john_scalzi
