Thought provoking about how Society works and human foibles - incredibly prescient (I fear) as Climate Change begins. Timothy: Re-Forming the Past: History, the Fantastic, and the Postmodern Slave Narrative. Gary Westfahl begins appropriately by exploring origins: when does the term ``hard science fiction'' emerge and what elements build reader perceptions of who writes it? Human beings have yet to discover hard evidence for the existence of life forms on other planets, and even though a general fiction writer must create with this fact in mind, a science fiction writer is free to imagine and create alien life forms.

This is an error characteristic of left-leaning thinkers, who tend to assume that anything not "left" is "right" and that approving of free markets somehow implies social conservatism. Haldeman, Joe The Forever War. 1974, Ballantine. The Mistborn Series is interesting in this regard: the sense of history of the people within the world seems to be akin to the medieval paradigm (they viewed history and human development as a sort of flat line, with everything staying the same over time).

Enigmatic advanced artificial intelligences dismantle and alter binary star systems with white dwarfs in them. Who, a Time Travel Institute, and the catalog of an individual who purports to sell time machines (which might be worthy of a story of its own). This is a good example of his satirical humour at its most razor sharp. Many of the central core of cyberpunk authors, including William Gibson, Rudy Rucker, Lewis Shiner, John Shirley, and Bruce Sterling, have turned to other projects.

Amazingly, even in 1968, Dick saw the potential for technology to not only connect people across long distances but to do so with emotional depth. For instance, while the world of The Hunger Games includes advances in technology, the primary emphasis is on changes in human society -- how a new form of totalitarianism that echoes the later stages of the Roman Empire might emerge in a world of post-apocalyptic scarcity. For this subgenre, Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is a cornerstone.

Baha'is are widely classified as one the major world religions, but they have apparently not been used as subject material by very many writers.

For perhaps the only time in the entire six-film sequence, George Lucas’s stated ambition to marry ’40s-style derring-do with modern-day SFX really reaches fruition: ‘Big Sleep’ writer Leigh Brackett’s script may have been all but junked by Lucas and rewriter Lawrence Kasdan, but her old-world sensibilities are all over the finished movie. However, in any cultural system, there are always those who live on its margins, on 'the Edge': criminals, outcasts, visionaries, or those who simply want freedom for its own sake.

Our desire to create life by unconventional means goes back a long way. The setting was enjoyable, marooned on a water world with a crew of dolphins. It takes you that long to let go of your Hugo. Sheffield, Charles Aftermath. 1998, Bantam. To live on the inside is to participate in a blue-collar version of the kind of mindless, conformist existence lived by Gibson's sararimen, who are, like Jeter's "widgets,'' mere cogs in the corporate machine.

From memory it has space travel, timeslips, psychics AND anti-psychics, half dead souls feeding off one another's life force in vats, inexplicable kinks in the nature of reality - but it's also tightly, economically constructed, which some of his books aren't. It all began at Christmas 1948 - yes 1948 - with a four-thousand-word short story that I wrote for a contest sponsored by the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation). Back to the Future came out just as the actual DeLorean Motor Company finished crumbling into oblivion, but that doesn’t make this classic movie car any less memorable.

The stories explore a society in which gender differences or gender power imbalances do not exist. Aficionados of hard science fiction accept Poul Anderson's medieval space cultures without a murmur but eschew the future worlds of Mack Reynolds which are worked out with a much more sophisticated and rigorous knowledge of economics and politics. (#6 54, 55) The implication is that the term is being applied to certain writers in an arbitrary and illogical manner.
