Charles Sheffield's "A Braver Thing"Posted by Trent Walters at 4:56 AM
This is not a Mundane story, but it serves as a good test to help define what Mundane is, to differentiate what does and does not fall within the category. It is good, realistic fiction, which presumably takes place in the future, yet it is not a science fiction that poses a possible future. Instead, it poses an ethical quandry in science. Although one might make a marginal case for inclusion based on good ethics in science being essential for a better future on Earth, the rippling effects of such necessity are not presented.
