Quote of the Day 31st August 2013

Niven's law:

"There is a technical literary term for those who mistake the opinions and beliefs of characters in a novel for those of the author.

The term is 'idiot.'"

(Larry Niven, attributed by S. M. Stirling in the acknowledgements at the start of his novel "Conquistador.")
