Virtual Technology seemed liked the way to go in the 80s (and a lot of companies tried to bring it about) but now we are talking about Augmented Reality. My point was that I prefer to see SF that’s about ordinary kinds of people, as opposed to being about aristocrats, power elites, military officers, or police. SF as a genre, even at its most "conventional," is very much a cultural underground. Verne set a high standard for accuracy and believability that influenced the writers who followed him, and space fiction became much more realistic.

The band�s use of synths, heavy beats, guitar riffs could all �fit right in with the pre-Windows world of hard-core hacking in "Neuromancer." Its story pits Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) and a squad of space marines against alien xenomorphs infesting a remote planetary colony. I’m not just crazy about that name, ‘cyberpunk.’ That prefix kind of locks the whole genre to a certain brief era, and ‘punk,’ it was an ethos that maybe fit back in the wild west days of the internet, where everywhere you turned there was another alt_frontier.

Wells' The War of the Worlds was written as a critique of British imperialism; depicting the United Kingdom as a victim of it at the tentacles of the technologically superior Martians, rather than as a perpetuator of it as it had been in his time. This posthumous volume is a gigantic "best of" collection covering most of her career. That’s very much a multipart question, G man. It has evolved from the chip-driven/enhanced human to bio-tech/chip/cognition enhanced humans.

Even before the “Dune” series was made into a mini-series for the Sci-Fi channel, this series of books had a huge and devout following that rivaled that of “The Lord of the Rings.” This great series took place over 1,000s of years, and originally consisted of the novel “Dune” and five sequels, although other related novels have been published by his son since then. The greatest artistic achievement of the long-ago twentieth century. Hyde (1920), based on the psychological tale by Robert Louis Stevenson.

He is the man who first coined the term cyberspace, and is often called the father of cyberpunk. Dick's works have been adapted to the silver screen." I really have not read many of the authors you listed, the most being KSR. A complex and nuanced genre of fiction, dreampunk narratives are layered and can be interpreted on many levels, with superficial narrative elements suitable for all audiences as well as deep and chilling archetypal references that are more intriguing for readers interested in alchemy, psychoanalysis or the occult.

Clarke 's novel as 2001: A Space Odyssey won the Academy Award for Visual Effects and offered thematic complexity not typically associated with the science fiction genre at the time. This page is part of my What is Science Fiction? site. "Hard" science fiction is a hotly-defended sub-genre whose definition is also in dispute, though there are probably fewer disputants than for the definition of ScF as a whole. Over the years, science fiction has been a gateway through which young people have been introduced to the excitement of scientific discovery.

His first science fiction story was published in 1851, and his first SF novel, Cinq semaines en ballon (Five Weeks in a Balloon), in 1863. Or a computer may be vindictive, as in Harlan Ellison's 1968 short story "I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream," and punish a representative group of surviving humans eternally. He’s also a highly regarded expert on space travel who has testified before the House subcommittee on space and aeronautics. “Is that the collapsible, carbon fiber ten-foot pole from TrunchCo—” I slammed my locker door and spun the combo lock, but it was too late; the fanboy already seen my gear.

World Government SF features a world (usually Earth) ruled by a unified government. The dystopian setting also features the class contrast and stratified hierarchy between the Party bureaucracy with no freedom whatsoever because they are under total control and surveillance by the Big Brother computer networks, and the Proles who live in decadent polluted Wretched Hives with nonexistent social welfare and have the freedom of not being watched by Big Brother, but don't care about politics and the system's abuse of said computer networks since they degenerated into hedonists who waste their lives on mindless entertainment such as porn.

Science fiction is typically divided into two over-arching genres: hard and soft. It's a locked-room murder mystery, except that the locked room is a virtual—or, rather, artificial—reality, and the boundaries between AR and the "real" world, between the body and the avatar, have become blurred and permeable. Authors didn’t just explore their characters being manipulated: They began to question the very notion of reality itself.
