Doris Lessing has just won the Nobel Prize for Literature!
Why does it matter so much? Because Doris Lessing writes science fiction! It's a nice rub in the face of all those literary snobs who think SF as lesser fiction. Eat it!

Thanks so much to Doris Lessing for paving the way for other great SF authors out there! We have hope yet!
