"Some Notes on the Pre-Dynastic Epoch"

by Robert Silverberg

Form: Short story

Year: 1973

ID: 1080

Publication history:


Inspired by The Tablets by Armand Schwerner.

A odd assemblage of scenes, lists, clippings, and so on, which in some ways mocks the pretenses of science fiction (and storytelling in general) while it criticizes contemporary society. Contains the following memorable paragraph a couple pages in:

None of the aforegoing is true. I take pleasure in deceiving. I am an extremely unreliable witness.
