We’re diving right into the meat of genre discussion with our second episode of SandF 2.0! This week we discuss the recent Locus Magazine round table on the aesthetics of science fiction and what we think makes science fiction a “beautiful” genre. Tune in, share, and enjoy!
Note: This episode is part one of our discussion. We really got into the discussion and ran longer than we had intended. The second half will go up next weekend.
Question of the Week:
What do you think makes science fiction (or other genres) beautiful?
