Time-Anchoring n.

Time-Anchoring n. the act of being anchored in a previous time, usually but not exclusively the 1950s.


Analog is firmly time-anchored, isn’t it? Do you think they’ll ever find out about the Internet?

We get a lot of time-anchored story submissions here at our magazines. Who would have thought the future looked just like the 1950s? We tend to send them to Analog instead.

    Just realized that there’s already a Clute for this–“Real Year.” i.e., “Gene Wolfe’s THE SORCERER’S HOUSE is a great book, but whatever it says in passing about cell phones, its Real Year is 1965.”
