Sci Fi Novels Change The Way We Think

By Leticia Jensen

The ideas in sci fi novels often come from the cutting edge developments in medicine, technology and other spheres. They are presented in such a way that they challenge the reader to look at change and what it could mean but at the same time the stories are intriguing and entertaining. Unfamiliar scenarios lift us above our daily concerns and carry us away. At the same time, they can change the way we think about our world.

Genetic engineering is just one of the ideas being written about today. Many themes revolve around human beings whose physical and mental capabilities have been enhanced in some way. One of the issues addressed is whether these abilities are used for good or evil and how this affects those around them.

We all speculate about the future and in these books we are presented with many different scenarios. Some of these are apocalyptic in nature such as those where humans suffer dire consequences because of what they have done to nature. Others may take problems of our current world, like poverty and disease and offer future scenarios where these kinds of problems have solutions.

Technological advances are the subject of many such books. They play on our fears that technology will take over our lives. Isaac Asimov wrote about robots in a way that made us really begin to think about the implications of artificial intelligence from every angle, including ethically and legally.

The boundaries between genres today are becoming less rigid. For example, sometimes it is hard to draw the line between science fiction and fantasy. Genres often draw from one another too. For example, a book about time travel can also be a crime novel with a serial killing time traveler as the main character. A book about another universe can include a romance and a fantasy world may contain inventions that are scientifically believable.

Some of these books reveal other worlds in such intricate detail that they fill your head completely and take you away for a time from your daily struggles. In the past Jules Verne and H. G. Wells both succeeded in doing this. However, the science fiction of yesterday often becomes the reality of today and writers are always on the look out for new ideas.

The books being written now cover a vast array of topics. There is still a place for those novels about aliens, outer space and robots as many people still enjoy reading these. However, our minds are now being exposed to a whole new range of interesting possibilities by new authors.

There are thousands of science fiction books from which to choose, many of which are being sold online. Reading reviews on internet sites can give you a good idea of whether you would like a particular book or not. Even if you have not considered reading this genre before, the fact that the line between genres has become more blurred means that you may find one that appeals to you, containing elements of other genres like murder or romance.
