  • 15:27 @ShineAnthology So maybe the future of SF is in "developing" countries SK/I/C/B) where the optimism for the future is still in place? #
  • 15:28 @ShineAnthology What about steampunk as the "gateway drug" into SF, much as urban fantasy is the "gateway" into fantasy/spec-fic? #
  • 15:29 @ShineAnthology the "urban fantasy is gateway drug" analogy is due to Lou Anders, from a talk at Orycon. #fb #
  • 15:29 @ShineAnthology Steampunk seems optimistic, perhaps a "positive-outlook developing country steampunk" is the future SF? #
  • 15:31 @ShineAnthology (reading ur earlier posts) Yet, SF dominates mass media - TV shows and movies. & NYT best sellers are all speculative. #
  • 15:33 @ShineAnthology (another Lou Anders note) Books are dominated by fantasy w/female fans, TV & movies & video games (!) by SF w/male fans. #
