The Novel Is Not Dead

Anthropologie

There has been talk over the past year or more saying that the “Novel” is dead, specifically Sci-fi.

 

As along as humanity can think, fiction will not die. Yes there are a plethora of non-fiction out there with compelling stories.

 

But unless you only want to read about someone’s reality no matter how interesting it may be, there are times when fiction can fill a void.  There are so many examples where fiction has shaped reality.

 

I can sight Star Wars and Star Trek to name just two worlds where their creator’s vision has pushed our shared realities ahead.

 

Tri-corders, hypo sprays and gadgets alike have or will soon make their way into our everyday consciousness. If there wasn’t fiction to spark humanity along, it would be a very dull world.
