Rudy Rucker weighs in on Mundane SF

On Mundane SF

I don’t think SF is necessarily about predicting possible futures. I’ve always felt that SF is more like surrealism. The idea is to shock people into awareness. Show them how odd the world is. Whether or not you draw on realistic tropes is irrelevant.

Let it be said that futurism and SF are quite different endeavors. A rude person might say that futurism is about feeding inspirational received truths to businessmen and telling them it will help them make more money. SF is about unruly artistic visions.

  1. Thanks for the strategies you write about through this website. In addition, many young women who become pregnant tend not to even aim to get health insurance coverage because they dread they probably would not qualify. Although a lot of states right now require insurers give coverage despite the pre-existing conditions. Costs on these types of guaranteed programs are usually larger, but when taking into consideration the high cost of medical treatment it may be your safer way to go to protect one’s financial potential.
