Sascha  Mamczak - The Art of Science Fiction


And say hello to the future from me – what writing science fiction is really about

Why do millions of people round the world read the novels of Isaac Asimov, Stanislaw Lem or Andy Weir? What makes Star Wars into a global multi-billion phenomenon? Why are 2001: A Space Odyssey or Blade Runner seen as unique cult films? What is ultimately the "art" of science fiction?

In this major essay Sascha Mamczak, award-winning editor, writer and expert on fantasy literature aims to look for what makes up the core of the most popular entertainment genre in the world – what the means and methods are that science fiction writers use to lure their audience into a world of fantasy.
