February 2013: Blurring the Line Between SF and Fantasy
Many works of speculative fiction aren’t hard science fiction and can’t easily be defined as traditional fantasy, including elements of technology, magic, and myth. Think rockets and dragons, robots and wizards, computers and spell books, laser guns and magical lances. That blurring between genres is often called science fantasy. In our February 5th meeting, we will solicit attendee thoughts and opinions on existing works, as well as on incorporating science fantasy themes into your own stories, possibly overcoming writing blocks you may be having trying to make your science fiction- or fantasy-only ideas work.
Moderator: Alan Vincent Michaels
Location: Barnes & Noble, Pittsford
Meeting Time: February 5, 2013 from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.
