  • Good News From The Vatican

    Spookily, on the very day the new Pope was chosen, I received a batch of the 70s Marvel comic Unknown Worlds Of Science Fiction, one of which featured a comic strip version of a Silverberg story Good News From The Vatican, about the election of a robot Pope. I'd like to read Silverberg's story but don't have it anywhere. Has anyone read it? Is it worth seeking out?
    'You know, I can't keep up with you. If I hadn't met you in person, I quite honestly would NOT believe you really existed. I just COULDN'T. You do so MUCH... if half of what goes into your zines is to be believed, you've read more at the age of 17 than I have at the age of 32 - LOTS more'

    Yes, it's a good story. I referred to it recently in another thread. It won a Nebula award in '71, and it can be found in that year's Nebula anthology, as well as several other places -- various Silverberg story collections, for example.
