Sci-Fi Biweekly Bulletin: Breach, We Robots, etc.

From spaceships to alternate history, and other worlds to nanites, science fiction is a fascinating genre of rather amazing depth that many talented writers happily delve into on a daily basis. And we, the curators here at Sci-Fi & Scary, aren’t even going to talk about a tenth of it right now. However, what you will get is a selection of movies, books, and interesting articles from across the net. Also, there’s a strong potential for puns, gifs, and a moderate amount of fangirling.

And, of course, a giveaway of a completely amazeballs book.

Science Fiction Books

We, Robots by Simon Ings

From 1837 through to the present day, from Charles Dickens to Cory Doctorow, Simon Ings presents a hundred of the best short stories on artificial intelligence from around the world.

These stories demonstrate humanity’s enduring fascination with artificial creation. Crafted in our image, androids mirror our greatest hopes and darkest fears: we want our children to do better and be better than us, but we also place ourselves in jeopardy by creating beings that may eventually out-think us.

This compelling SF figure has persisted across decades and subgenres, so the anthology is organised into six thematic sections: Making Robots, Dealing with Robots, Served by Robots, Changing Places with Robots, Being Robots, and, finally, Supplanted by Robots.

We, Robots collects the finest android short stories the genre has to offer, from the biggest names in the field to the exciting rising stars.

  1. Modern Sci-Fi vs. Golden Age? That’s easy: Gloom vs. Glory. Modern Sci-Fi is often dark and gloomy, {from what I gather reading this blog}, and Golden Age is pure fun and fantasy. No need to weigh things down with hard science. Ray-Guns, and Rockets to the stars, full of manly he-men with coifed hair to rescue space-age damsels in distress. I love ‘Flash Gordon’ from 1980 and the accompanying Queen soundtrack as it captures the Thirties Flash Gordon vibe. If you want me to try to stretch this thought out into five-hundred words, then please rush ten clams to [email protected]
    Happy Trails!
