A change in worlds, when an author takes you to a place you are sure does not exist. Then you have that feeling that maybe it is real, the writing is convincing enough. Sci-fi takes ‘a new world’ to a complete different level. I think of this genre as imagination set loose, as anything can happen. Sci-Fi can take you to the past; it can bring you to the future where the past has been repeated; It can introduce you to superhuman; It can explore those ‘What If’s’ often ignored.
Definition of Science Fiction
fiction based on imagined future scientific or technological advances and major social or environmental changes, frequently portraying space or time travel and life on other planets.
“I have never listened to anyone who criticized my taste in space travel, sideshows or gorillas. When this occurs, I pack up my dinosaurs and leave the room.”
― Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing
“We can only know what we can truly imagine. Finally what we see comes from ourselves.”
― Marge Piercy, Woman on the Edge of Time
“Science fiction deals with improbable possibilities, fantasy with plausible impossibilities.”

“Every dystopia is masked by a utopia.”
