Exercise Your Disbelief With Science Fiction

Summer is back in full swing at the Maud Marks Library and with it, our ever popular genre challenge!

This week we are highlighting the Science Fiction genre.  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.

The best of the best, when it comes to science fiction, win the Nebula Award.
