Science fiction buffs are always looking for the next big thing—for new stories of worlds and universes we never knew existed and cutting-edge ideas, unlike anything we’ve ever read. Thus, authors today are exploring and seeing where humanity’s science fiction dreams might take them.
Science fiction’s look on the non-realistic mode of imaginative creation of the human age is what makes it popular to this day and possibly in the coming years. Its domain ranges from the Earth we know of to the impact of actual or imagined science on society. Like its cousin, fantasy, sci-fi is a type of speculative fiction that employs elements that are foreign to readers. Within this unfamiliar situation are real human concerns and issues explored in an entirely different light. This makes its popularity two-fold.
