Slide5

That sounds a lot like Fantasy!

Yes and no:

Both involve a lot of imagination!

But,

no magical or impossible elements are used in SF

Fantasy plots can include magic, dragons, unicorns, etc.

Fantasy might be considered an escape from reality, with

no predictions or warnings

, while SF is meant to be a reminder of what is happening in the world today.

Slide6

“Science fiction is a depiction of

the real.

Fantasy is a depiction of the unreal

.”

~R. Bradbury

SF plots can be explained through science

The science used usually doesn’t currently exist. Instead,

authors

predict

that it could exist

at some point in the future.

SF authors are known for often being RIGHT!

Slide7

***SF is rarely written just for fun***

There is usually an underlying theme, or ‘moral,’ that acts as a warning to the reader.SF writers take things that already exist

and imagine what could happen in the future if we stay on the same path. Hint: It’s not usually good.

In this way, SF works as a

very

effective

social commentary

The author is trying to tell us how the way we live is going wrong

Slide8

Science ran too far ahead of us too quickly, and the people got lost in a mechanical wilderness,” ~R. Bradbury (

The Language of Literature

68-69).
