Speculative Fiction

Speculative fiction is an umbrella genre. It encompasses any fictional literature which features elements that do not exist in the real world, such as fantasy, science fiction, fairy-tales, superhero fiction, horror, supernatural fiction, utopian and dystopian fiction, alternate history, time travel and various combinations of these. Besides literature, speculative fiction is often seen to include art, film and virtual arts.

The earliest forms of speculative fiction go back to the beginning of human speech when mythological stories and fairy tales would have been told around a fire. The dramas of ancient Greece also belong to this genre. Here, the blog focuses on some of the paradigm-changing speculative fiction of this century.
