LET'S SEE WHAT THE EXPERTS HAD TO SAY The appeal of science fiction Bibliography Designed by Claire When Aliens with superior technology are a threat to Earth. Alien Invasion Welcome back to ........ Alien Literature 101 Hope you had a great holiday (and completed all assigned reading!!!!!) "Ender's Game" "Neuromancer" "Science fiction writers foresee the inevitable, and although problems and catastrophes may be inevitable, solutions are not. "
-Isaac Asimov "For me science fiction is a way of thinking, a way of logic that bypasses a lot of nonsense. It allows people to look directly at important subjects. "
- Gene Roddenberry, creator of "Star Trek" "Science fiction is the most important literature in the history of the world, because it's the history of ideas, the history of our civilization birthing itself. ...Science fiction is central to everything we've ever done, and people who make fun of science fiction writers don't know what they're talking about.”
― -Ray Bradbury ".. science fiction is often very far from escapism, in fact you might say that science fiction is escape into reality... It's a fiction which does concern itself with real issues: the origin of man; our future. In fact I can't think of any form of literature which is more concerned with real issues, reality."
- Arthur C Clark “Science fiction deals with improbable possibilities, fantasy with plausible impossibilities.”
-Miriam Allen de Ford Goodreads. "Science Fiction Books." Share Book Recommendations With Your Friends, Join Book Clubs, Answer Trivia. Goodreads Inc, n.d. Web. 12 Jan. 2013. <http://www.goodreads.com/genres/science-fiction>. "Science Fiction Sub-Genres." Worlds Without End. icow.com, n.d. Web. 2 Jan. 2013. <http:/www.worldswithoutend.com/resources_sub-genres.asp>. *All sub-genre definitions came for the website www.worldswithoutend.com. I highly recommend this website because you can search a book and it will give you it's top three sub-genres, OR if you are looking for a book with a specific sub-genre it provides a link to a list of books with every definition.* "Growing up, I never gave a thought to being a writer. All I ever wanted to be was a traveler and explorer. Science-fiction allowed me to go places that were otherwise inaccessible, which is why I started reading it."
-Alan Dean Foster "Science fiction is any idea that occurs in the head and doesn't exist yet, but soon will, and will change everything for everybody, and nothing will ever be the same again. As soon as you have an idea that changes some small part of the world you are writing science fiction. It is always the art of the possible, never the impossible. "
-Ray Bradbury “One of the liberating effects of science fiction when I was a teenager was precisely its ability to tune me into all sorts of strange data and make me realize that I wasn’t as totally isolated in perceiving the world as being monstrous and crazy”
― William Gibson "So much of literary sci-fi is about creating worlds that are rich and detailed and make sense at a social level. We'll create a world for people and then later present a narrative in that world. "
James Cameron
