Scifi for me, please

If you asked me, I’d have to admit to wanting my scifi free of fantasy elements. Can’t help it. While I don’t mind dragons in movies, I’m not so willing to read about them. I want my “Ship who Sang.” You can have those “dragons of Perth.” This post explains the differences, the fusions, and their futures well.

One thought on “Scifi for me, please

  1. For me, I LOVE genre mash-ups. I can understand the “purist” (for lack of a better word) way of thinking; we read books of certain genres because they contain common elements and tropes that we find thrilling. But personally, I think that when you blend two genres, not only are you giving yourself a lot more room to write (you don’t have to write in the conventions of single structure) but you also can do a lot more fun stuff that way.
