(abbreviated SF or sci-fi with varying punctuation and capitalization) is a broad genre offictionthat often involves speculations based on current or future science or technology. Science fiction is found in books, art, television, films, games, theatre, and other media. In organizational or marketing contexts, science fiction can be synonymous with the broader definition ofspeculative fiction, encompassing creative works incorporating imaginative elements not found in contemporary reality; this includesfantasyhorrorand related genres.

Although the two genres are often conflated asscience fiction/fantasy, science fiction differs from fantasy in that, within the context of the story, its imaginary elements are largely possible within scientifically established or scientifically postulated laws of nature (though some elements in a story might still be pure imaginative speculation). Exploring the consequences of such differences is the traditional purpose of science fiction, making it a literature of ideas. Science fantasy is largely based on writing entertainingly and rationally about alternate possibilities in settings that are contrary to known reality.Most Read This Week Tagged Science Fiction

Lettori sui generis levoluzione dello storico YA e dintorni: gli anni e le letture hanno allamore

[close]Lettori sui generis levoluzione dello storico YA e dintorni: gli anni e le letture hanno allargato i nostri orizzonti, andando ad aggiungere alla letteratura per ragazzi letteratura di ogni genere (letteralmente ;)). Esploriamo il mainstream e lo storico, ogni declinazione del giallo e del fantasy, della fantascienza e della distopia, con un occhio di riguardo ai classici. Romanzi, novelle, antologie, graphic novel: la forma, come il genere, non rappresenta un limite, ma unulteriore invito alla lettura. Ci guidano curiosit e passione per la parola: chiunque arrivi da noi per la strada delle storie il benvenuto. :)
