It's a Universe of Science Fiction Stories

Summer has started and with it the Maud Marks Summer Genre Challenge.  Everytime you read a book in certain genres you can enter to win a basket of books in that genre.  If you read in 5 different genres, you get an entry to win our grand prize basket which includes a Kindle Fire, a gift card to Katy Budget Books, and 4 tickets to the Alamo Drafthouse.

This week we are going to concentrate on Science Fiction.  Science Fiction is speculative fiction and raises controversial questions in worlds based on plausible scientific theories. Traditionally it posits future worlds and technologies, but settings in the past, rich in future technologies, have grown in popularity. No matter the time and setting, science supported by known scientific principles drive the stories.
