I’m very excited to announce the latest fruit of my ongoing collaboration with SEED Magazine — a web-only article justifying the cultural and scientific import of science fiction. Being written for a primarily scientific audience, there are large sections of the Venn diagram that will already have been filled in; yes, I’m preaching to the choir a little. Still, it was exciting to have a forum in which I could clearly define my love for sci-fi in more approachable terms than, “this Philip K. Dick book fucks me up!”
This article occupied every corner of my mind for over a week, and allowed me to delve back into some of my favorite books on the subject, namely the great Robert Scholes’ Structural Fabulation, Brian Aldiss’ Billion Year Spree, and In Search of Wonder, by Damon Knight. Go there!
