The Definition Of Science fiction
Jonathan McCalmont's latest Futurismic column (Blasphemous Geometries) is online and entitled How to define a genre â€¦ and why not to bother...
Scientists have proved that 86.4% of all arguments in genre boil down to disagreements over what does and does not fit within a particular genre or subgenre.
Excellent stuff. Personally I definitely prefer saying "this is what I call Science Fiction" rather than the tick-list definition approach.
