I had to do some searching for my paper topic but I believe I have finally found what I want to write. I was looking through Zeppelin City and I came across the passage where Amelia Spindizzy is swooping around the city and thinking about a heroic death. Why would anyone want to die? Even if the death was considered heroic, it is still the end. My topic is the use of the heroic death in science fiction and how it relates to the purpose of the story. What do you think?
