What is The Science of Fiction?
The Science of Fiction is a newsletter on how science shapes stories about the future and how stories about the future shape science. Its goal is to highlight the awesome power of science fiction as a tool that can help bring about a better world and frankly, to engage in some rampant science based speculation about monsters.
Specifically, this newsletter will include…
- Explainers on the real world science behind fictional technologies, fictional worlds, and fictional beings from the future.
- Essays on scientific themes in science fiction, fantasy, and horror.
- Interviews with storytellers who are supercharging their fiction with science.
- Investigations of how science fiction has inspired scientific research.
