“If in sci fi we’d be sticking to things we can do today – there’d be no sci fi. Instantaneous assimilation of data – think about computers of the year, say, 1960… a room for a computer. Think what a computer does today and how much room it takes… I am confident future data processing devices will be able to handle information streams by far faster and more effectively than what we have today. Provided humanity won’t fall into a dystopia that is…
Anyhow, if you were to talk about errors in science fiction – don’t think mechanical things or technology – because it’s all work in progress. I mean, come on, NASA already understands how warp works – all we need is energy and material resources to make it happen.
Errors in knowledge of the already known to us Universe – that might be something to fish for. But again, in today’s world even Pluto has been disqualified…
I guess what I am trying to say, keep an open mind when it comes to science fiction – keep yourself entertained by projecting possibilities – however crazy and unthinkable – onto our potential, of the humanity as a whole. Science fiction is no place for a debate over technicalities – it’s a place to share dreams. The best place there is!”
Camilla Stein in response to ‘Errors in Science Fiction’.
TO MY READERS
Welcome and thank you for visiting my science fiction blog.
My interest in sci fi began when I was just a kid. I would read on till late hours, often under a blanket with a pocket lamp. Books, especially science fiction books, have been my window into a completely different world, something magical, yet something absolutely real and achievable. Remaining that kid and keeping that proverbial fascination with all things sci fi is what brought me here, and who knows where it’ll take me next! I am happy to welcome you all as participants in this journey.
I am currently working on a new novel called Over the Rainbow I Fly. This book is taking up all my creative juice, but I still birth short stories from time to time which I am delighted to share with you here and hope you’ll enjoy them. The newly released this March of 2015 is called The Saddest Story Ever, with my son being the source of inspiration.
You are also always welcome to check out Space Scrapers, a series of short stories about a trio of bounty hunters in space whose choices affect their personal transformation. Cover for Space Scrapers is designed by yours truly! And don’t forget Gaia’s Children, a soft environmental scifi story with a dash of extraterrestrial biological threat to our world. Cover for Gaia’s Children is a real painting by my long time friend Janna Ali.
