"Pure" -ly Imagined "Imagination" by Kevin Cannon

I think that most people have at least one good memory of candy from their childhood. Which is why I think Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is an interestingly unorthodox kind of science fiction! Consider the theme of what's the, as Phillip K Dick said, "It's not just 'What if'-it's 'My God; what if'-in frenzy and hysteria" moment turns out to be how chocolate was made! Strange when compared to most science fiction books that seem to be set in futuristic worlds, yet similiar to many science fiction books in that it has an advanced secret factory. Opinions?
