Eileen Gunn has an excellent article published in Smithsonian Magazine about the history and nature of Science Fiction’s relationship with science and discovery. Titled How America‚Äôs Leading Science Fiction Authors Are Shaping Your Future, it is a thoughtful piece by an expert on the topic. It includes quotes from some of the best known authors in the field supporting or expanding on her points, and not all of those points are as comfortable as we might wish they were. I suspect this was commissioned as part of The Future Is Here Festival taking place next month at the Smithsonian in Washington, DC.
