Stranger than Science Fiction

So the topic came up about what books and stories we recalled from our youth. Ma Jia said she remembered reading and enjoying science fiction. I immediately had visions of the HAL 9000 from the movie 2001 A Space Odyssey (written by Arthur C Clarke) or Agent Mulder tracking down alien human hybrids. Marsha described a story she recalled, detailing how people were enjoying two different vegetables at one meal that are not available during the same growing season. HUH???? Needless to say I think HAL would have booted that author out of the space craft as well.
