The Power of Science Fiction Novels

Power of Science Fiction Novels

Sci-fi was made famous by authors like Philip Dick, Robert Heinlein and Isaac Asimov, who transformed the genre into something remarkable and exciting. A proper science fiction novel is where fantasy and reality met. It twists our mind and awakens our curiosity to discover more about the world and what lies behind it. Science fiction novels are based on reality, they question the truth, and contemplate different realms of our universe. The purpose is to go beyond the deepest abyss of our imagination and chase mysteries that are possible to solve. Sci-fi goes where other fiction cannot. Unlike horror, romance and other genres, it tells a story that is far more daring and dangerous because it portrays unimaginable occurrences that could happen in real life.

Sci-fi novels propose fascinating philosophies about humankind in the present, past and future. Writers have often created devices in their novels only to have them actually invented years later. Some examples include space stations of ‘Star Trek’ characters using small hand-help phones to communicate. Now, we have cellphones, gadgets and computers that make it possible to read other people no matter the distance.

However, sci-fi novels have their own place outside the realm of ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Star Trek’. It has its own frontier—a place for ‘free thinking’ not often seen in film or TV. Science fiction novels engage a reader to think of the impossible as being possible. Long before, ‘Star Wars’ and ‘War of the Worlds’, people would look up to the sky and imagine all kinds of creations who could do things that humans could not. One of the main purposes of modern science fiction is explicating something that the human race can’t in the present. Often, science fiction novels make a significant mark on modern society by predicating what may happen in the future.
