Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, I was a massive reader of sci-fi literature growing up and Canticle for Leibowitz was a work that I read multiple times.

And, well, we are making sci-fi reality with things like wireless internet and other 'futuristic' advances.

But, I fear that the doom-literature like Canticle for Leibowitz are becoming ever more possible. This is sci-fi that I don't want anyone to go through.

And, as for being able to accept die-off/such, as a parent this is a nightmare scenario.  It is possible, but it is one that I am fighting to maintain as 'scenario' rather than reality.

In any event, thank you for the reminder. Somewhere in my attic are multiple books meriting re-reads.
