For example, if a story has darker and more frightening elements of fantasy, it would belong in the subgenre of ; whereas another fantasy story that features and would belong to the subgenre of .

That incredible miasma from Crossed Genres amounts to burning a museum. Thanks to radical queer theory whatever role core SFF once had acting a role as curators or guardians of its own legacy has been trashed. These fools have declared a where all badthink from a previous era must be discarded so a glorious new era of social justice can emerge. Only someone with a severely blunted mentality could imagine SF ever represented social injustice and must be purged, yet that is exactly what Crossed Genres is arguing.

That's fascinating SF, if you like some transgender to go along with your rocket ships written by a middle class cis-hausfrau slumming in ancillary oppression and adopting radical gay feminism by proxy. Leckie's novel reminds me of tourists who take tours of the shanty towns in Rio de Janeiro. Yup, start handing out the awards right now.

Director Ridley Scott's long-awaited return to his Alien universe came with 2012's Prometheus. Prometheus delivers some remarkable visions with some maddeningly complex hints at its far edges but with a rather less remarkable story. However, even nuanced confusion doesn't seem all that bad nowadays.

One definition is a "prose composition with a focused subject of discussion" or a "long, systematic discourse"

Despite the occasional cinematic SF success story, that success is still achieved in mainstream terms, not in terms of the literary source material itself, whether it be adaptations of SF novels or original screenplays. Hollywood has mostly been unable to capture or understand what it is SF literature has to offer. Probably the closest Hollywood has come to capturing the combination of high tragedy and poignancy amid the unique circumstances SF can deal in are things such as some few of the original Twilight Zone, Outer Limits, and perhaps 2 or 3 episodes of the original Star Trek. I think it's fair to say the repackaged Star Trek pilot episode presented in two parts as "The Menagerie" and an episode titled "The Empath" touch on an artistry unique to SF that goes beyond mere monster-of-the-week.

Worst of all lately was the opportunity to adapt Edgar Rice Burroughs' A Princess of Mars in 2012. What emerged was John Carter and yet more evidence filmmakers will not trust original material, think they can do better, and wreck a film. John Carter so little resembles A Princess of Mars it can be honestly said that, like Robert Heinlein's Starship Troopers, a film adaptation of the novel has yet to be made.

One must respect true eccentricity rather than attempt to impersonate it and end up with a group of so-called artists who are all iconoclasts - a self-contradictory proposition. I find it hard to believe that anyone who has had a real taste of SF could enjoy the garbage that was the Tom Cruise film Oblivion. What's worse is to see such empty work decades after SF stories like "Fondly Fahrenheit" by Alfred Bester, "A Rose For Ecclesiastes" by Roger Zelazny or "The Big Front Yard" by Clifford D. Simak. This is not progress.
