Asking very young fans to read "classical" sf stories and discuss them with older fans is both interesting and educational. How do stories like Asimov's "Nightfall", Heinlein's "By His Bootstraps", or Merril's "That Only a Mother" strike someone born in 1990 or 2000? Do they actually work? Or do the style, attitudes, and unconscious assumptions of the stories prevent them from reaching today's readers?
