SCFI is much like rock and roll, not dead but not really alive either random thoughts Send a noteboard - 03/04/2017 07:22:53 PM

Only one book really qualifies as science fiction and what if is the point of having a YA subsection if most of the novels nominated are YA?

It almost impossible to find any actual science fiction anymore. My daughter asked me if considered myself a nerd and said I used to but not anymore. Nerds used to like science fiction because they liked the idea of science, now they like the idea of being a nerd and don't want to be bored with any stupid science mucking up the fantasy.

I blame YA and a generation that grew up watching comic books instead of reading them. And liberals I blame liberals.
