Is it legit to set a story in another dimension by stating the date to be "1987A?" Or does that just look like a typo? Slash... sound ridiculous?
Much as I enjoy near-future SF, the weight of history, reality, science, and so forth are a real pain to deal with when it comes to writing. It's a good thing I live in 2010A; I don't think I could handle the real world in real life.
Alright, weigh in. 1987A!
