What is Science Fiction, Actually? — Sci-fi Series


For such an important and well-loved genre, sci-fi is rather difficult to define. Is it space opera? High-brow philosophical parables? Serious speculation about the future of technology? Is it all of those things? And then, what isn’t it?

In this episode, we attempt to “solve” this puzzling genre by answering one simple question: “what is science fiction?”

▬▬▬▬ What is Tale Foundry? ▬▬▬▬
If fiction were a material, we would be its manufacturing plant. We take apart stories to see what makes them tick, then recycle what we find to create our own.

Every month we make a video discussing what we’ve discovered, a list of interesting ideas, and then, finally, an original short story that makes use of all the new material.
