    Interesting points — but it was Chile that had Pinochet. Argentina was under a military junta (arguably more barbaric still) from 1976 to 1983.

    Great post, Gord, and I love Random Acts of Senseless Violence, as well (and yeah: it was ahead of its time. But if you truly think most modern SF isn’t about what *could* happen in the worst sense of the word, then you’ve missed about 95% of what’s published, and filmed. Dystopia, gloom’n’doom and apocalypse rule the waves. Seriously: the Hunger Games shattered box office records).

    But, for the love of all my German masters, it’s *bildungsroman*, not ‘bildungromans’ (even wikipedia knows it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bildungsroman ).
