Tell it to a science-fiction and fantasy fan, and he’ll ask why you’re making minor alterations to the plot of The Matrix or Superman Returns. I’m a proponent of genetic engineering, an advocate of space exploration, a reader and writer of science fiction. Other characters, some of them only featured for a few paragraphs, manage the same. We started writing cyberpunk because we had a really strong discontent with the status quo in science fiction, and with the state of human society at large.” “I didn’t have a manifesto.

Almost Human is this, because despite the rampart hi-tech crime, the good guys (a traumatized cop and his android partner ) actually often save the day. 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. I was never much of a Raymond Chandler fan, either.

What some writers present as a future danger is the sentient computer, the artificial intelligence that sets off about its own agenda, like D. Century Rain has that whole 50s detective thing going on that might bore people looking for your future history space opera thing. Actually, I've heard other fen pronounce sci-fi as " skiffy " when used in this way.

The creation of the genre goes hand in hand with the advent of Science Fiction Fandom, which dates back to the 1920s. No Shelter From The Sky, The Unit in Brixton Point, Scene 1, music and ambience includes work by Kevin MacLeod and ERH. The careless technophilia of those days belongs to a vanished, sluggish era, when authority still had a comfortable margin of control.
