    Does life after the sort of culture we presume from sci-fi imply that its not there b/c of its absence in the book's world though?

    Fact is, AFAIK, there is no mention of timeframe anywhere and would presumably be 'near future'.
    Jurassic Park is indeed set in the time of the movie release (somewhat) which was 1993. I re-watched it on DVD recently and there is this scene before all the action starts where they have dinner (and Goldblum is spoiling all the tech-naivety) and in the dinner room they got all those buisness plans projected on to the walls. And one chart clearly shows: opening 1993, and every two years doubling the revenue. Invest people!!!

    In the list of 'slipstream' novels a few pages back there's a book titled 'The Oranging of America', which seems somehow prophetic.
