  • Jules Verne The Father Of Science Fiction - 620 words
    Jules Verne: The Father of Science Fiction The father of Science Fiction, a visionary French novelist, a short story writer, and a dramatist. This is the essence of the man we know today as Jules Verne. In his voluminous writings he foresaw a number of scientific devices and developments that were more than a century ahead of his time. Some of the inventions he imagined were created later in his lifetime, but some are still to be invented. He wrote over 80 books mostly before 1900 and a few of the things he described were helicopters, modern weapons, movies with sound, television and rockets. He was also the author of 20,000 Leagues under the Sea, which was written in the 1800's - years befo ...

  • 'social Science Fiction' In Asimov's Work - 1,525 words
    PART I "Social science fiction?" Science fiction is a term familiar to many people. This is especially true due to the tremendous influence of television. But the term "social science fiction," although not heard too often, is a term is descriptive of most of today's science fiction literature. "But what does it mean?" Social science fiction is the term given to literature "which is concerned with the impact of scientific advance upon human beings."(1) It is to be set apart from the adventure or "gadget" science fiction which is characterized by simplistic plots and flat characters. Social science fiction is concerned with the problems presented to humanity by technology and science. This th ...

    ... other who is wary of technology and would rather see her daughter with real friends, the little girl's father who sees technology as a boon to mankind, and the little girl who is entirely ignorant of the fact that Robbie is a robot and would rather think of it as a friend. The next story, "Runaround" takes place on the planet Mercury. Being another world, Asimov has chosen two new characters, George Powell and Michael Donovan. These two are field-testers for the largest robot manufacturer, U.S. Robotics and Mechanical Men Inc. They are on Mercury to test out a new series of robot specially designed to go out onto the hot surface of Mercury and retrieve a valuable element, selenium. Asimo ...

  • New Ideas In Contemporary Science Fiction - 769 words
    Our June issue features "Sidehunter," a wild and wooly adventure by Rajnar Vajra, set on a colorful and very alien world that allows no dull moments. But no matter how hostile the world, a troubleshooter may find that the problem has at least as much to do with the people who hired her. Wolf Read, of course, is the perfect artist to bring such a place to visual life, and hes provided a spectacular cover and opening spread. Our fiction line-up also includes a new Brenda Cooper and Larry Niven tale (set in the same future as "Choosing Life" in our January issue), a worthy successor to Jerry Oltions "Astral Astronauts" story in the May issue, the first new "Victor" story in way too long from Gr ...

  • Shocking Science Fiction - Aldous Huxley's Brave New World - 1,481 words
    The brilliant social satirist Aldous Huxley shocked the world in 1932 with the publication of his science fiction masterpiece Brave New World. The novel takes place in the cities of London and New Mexico during the year of 632 A.F. (After Ford). It is a future world of absolute stability and total sterility with one concern- happiness for all (Wright 84). In his foreword to the New Harper edition of Brave New World, Huxley states its theme as "the advancement of science as it affects human individuals." While these advances are universally thought to be tremendous progress in our growth as human beings, Huxley's feelings towards this evolution are of danger, caution, and concern ( Monarch 6) ...

  • Definition Of Science Fiction - 1,064 words
    The first example of science fiction I'd like to take a look at is Alien. A prime example of straightforward science fiction would be this movie. Space miners (or merchants...something like that) are awakened from their cryogenic sleep-state much earlier than was originally planned. A distress/warning beacon on an unfamiliar planet caused their ship to awaken them so that help could be dispatched. Of course, it turns out to be a ship that was taken over by the Aliens and the Earthlings' ship was soon to be infested. No questions about this one; it is most definitely science fiction. Humans meeting up with aliens and, of course, space travel, instantly places this film into the science fictio ...

  • Poe - 1,130 words
    Elements of Fiction in Poe=s Writing Edgar Allan Poe was an artist of literature. He was one of the greatest thriller/story tellers that America has known. He was known as "a seminal figure in the development in science fiction and the detective story. His writing came to have enormous importance for modern French literature" (X, John Richardson). Edgar Allan Poe wasn't out to frighten his audience. According to Peithman, his interest for his audience was within the human mind. In three of his works, AMorella@, ALigeia@, and AThe Oval Portrait@, there are several similarities and differences of elements of fiction such as theme, plot, tone, symbol, point of view, and climax. In the story ALi ...

  • Jimi Hendrix - 1,671 words
    ... he commercial appeal, but plus the real Hendrix that gave him his true appeal. The next album by The Jimi Hendrix Experience was titled Electric Ladyland, which Hendrix said was a reference to ...groupies, but I prefer the term Electric Ladies. My whole Electric Ladyland album is about them (Fairchild, Electric Ladyland 5). Some of the songs on Electric Ladyland, such as Crosstown Traffic and the cover of Bob Dylans song All Along the Watchtower, mark a departure from the Jimi Hendrix established by Axis: Bold As Love. Crosstown Traffic is more along the vein of songs included in Are You Experienced? and Hendrix was frustrated that it was released as a single. See, that LP was in certain ...

  • 1984 Sexuality And The Search For Truth - 1,524 words
    Sexuality and the Search For Truth in Orwells Nineteen Eighty-Four The question of the existence of human nature has been a popular topic in modern literary works. Authors such as Shelly and Freud seem to agree that there is such a thing, however, they disagree on its attributes. Orwell also believes that human nature does exist but he takes it a step further than simply acknowledging its existence. Rather, in 1984 he uses such themes as truth and sexuality to enhance the attributes of human nature. There characteristics, Orwell believes, are insuppressible. Orwell believes that it is innate for humankind to be sexual beings, and to be in pursuit of truth. In the course of 1984, these themes ...

  • How Will We Use Tomorrows Pcs - 1,403 words
    Tomorrow's PCs are going to be different in many ways; they will be more powerful, they will include more facilities for multimedia, and looking further ahead, they may have features such as three dimensional displays, or wrap around virtual reality. These changes will shape the way which we use our PCs, but even without such advances, there are changes that can and will take place in the operating systems that enable us to make better use of PCs. I would like to focus here on some of the changes that I believe are desirable. So what is wrong with today's operating systems ? Plenty. Whereas the hardware for today's desk top PCs has advanced at an ever increasing pace, the operating systems h ...

  • Kindred - 439 words
    Kindred was the very first book by Octavia Butler that I read. Unlike many science-fiction writers, she spends no time discussing the dynamics of time travel, which for a tale of this emotional magnitude, is a good thing. Kindred is hard book to read and it leaves you with so many questions; I have never looked at history in quite the same way. That is the hallmark of good writing, when it leaves you with much to think about. Also, Octavia Butler was the only black woman writing science fiction at the time, and so she became a role model to me. I don't normally enjoy science fiction novels, but this story was a major exception due to the fact that it was so interesting and I was really intri ...

  • My View About Fantasy - 313 words
    For many people, fantasy isn't more than a story about a princess, a prince, kings and queens, who always have a happy ending in anyway. For me, fantasy is more than that. It makes people think that maybe the world can be different, that maybe in the past and in the future, they were or will be someone like that princess or prince who everyone of us had dreamed with; and it makes that the world were we live in, is not as boring as we had thought. Many writers choose fantasy for their stories. If we look fast, maybe we will see that most of that stories are made for little children. But they're not. The message of romance and love that the fantasy stories give to us is not being understood by ...

  • Dracule - 1,724 words
    Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good. Evil often triumphs, but never conquers. The two quotations from above explain that evil never conquers because good always overcomes it. A good example of this is the book Dracula by Bram Stoker because the author expresses the nature of good vs. evil. Dracula wants to come to London because he wants to turn everyone into vampires. The basic background of the book Dracula is when Jonathan Harker, a realtor who is sent to Transylvania to complete a transaction with Dracula so he can come to England. What Harker does not know is that Dracula has a plan for world domination. Well, while Harker is on a train to Transylvania he enters the eas ...

  • Ray Bradbury - 1,502 words
    "Ray Bradbury is one of the immortals among us, whose classic works of science fiction, fantasy and horror will be read a thousand years from now by our descendents and the relatives alike of the planets of a thousand distant stars." ( Dragon*con, website). Hes won many awards for his writings and lectures, and I have no doubt in my mind that his writings will live on forever. "It was a special pleasure to see things eaten, to see things blackened and changed. With the brass nozzle in his fists, with this great python spitting its venomous kerosene upon the world, the blood pounded in his head, and his hands were the hands of some amazing conductor playing all the symphonies of blazing and b ...

  • Analysis The Star Arthur C Clark - 755 words
    This science fiction story called "The Star" has many religious and spiritual overtones which makes the theme of the story 'There always has to be one to save all" more obvious. From the first to the last sentence the theme was built throughout to be a parallel experience of what has happened to the people before the great flood. Like many great science fiction stories this one shares a great message of hope in the unknown and to be glad that we have been so lucky to survive whatever we were supposed to have survived. This story was written in the late 1970's because of the reference to the Mark VI computer. In the first paragraph there is brief indication of religious symbols such as three ...
