What are some specific examples you'll be looking at? If the comet were composed chiefly of hydrogen, the latter's combination with oxygen in the atmosphere would produce floods; if it were composed of nitrogen or carbonic acid, all life on the planet might be wiped out; and should the hydrogen not [sic] combine with the oxygen, fire would result, dooming much of the Earth to a fiery death." "Milne liked the drama of the last possibility so much that he developed it into a story all its own, "Into the Sun" (November 18,1882).

His robot stories are a huge influence on the way modern sci-fi sees artifical intellegence. Here the Federation has a dark underbelly and the daring crew of the Nosferatu boldly goes where Starfleet fears to tread. Hard science fiction tells stories based on the hardest of hard sciences, particularly on the engineering and technological application of these sciences. As with the other two New Wave books listed here, The Lathe of Heaven takes a previously explored theme in science fiction and poses deeper, more probing questions, calling our most basic presuppositions, even our own perceptions themselves, into question. 10.

Clarke shows how these remarkable innovations shaped and changed the earth--and made the world one. Horror beschreibt weniger den Inhalt einer Erzählung als vielmehr den Stil, die Wirkung auf den Leser. In other words, where some sci-fi stories can go on about dinosaurs with laser guns attached to their heads battling those pesky half shark people that flew from the Gladeron universe, hard science fiction will enable some sort of scientific gain like time travel or traveling with the speed of light; however, everything that follows will be a scrupulous, realistic description of what a world with those scientific gains would look like.

The best presentation of mystery in the genre since Edgar Allen Poe. 13. Heinlein's personal evolution from New Deal left-liberal to Goldwater conservative to anti-statist radical both led and reflected larger trends.

The first ‘Mad Max’ had a faint whiff of sci-fi, but that could have been the desolation of the Aussie landscape conjuring up visions of post-nuclear hell. It reminds me of Chuck Lukacs’ ‘Fantasy Genesis’ book for sketching new creatures using RPG dice and a a salad bar list of physical traits.
