Episode 48 — Science Fiction: Entertainment or Pretentious Art?

9 May

Adam returns for an off-the-cuff discussion of the purpose of science fiction (based on an SF Signal post by Jaimie Todd Rubin).  Is reading science fiction about its entertainment value?  Do non-genre writers or readers torment themselves with their reading/writing, unlike science fiction readers and writers?  We also tackle the infamous term “speculative fiction.”
