Is SF becoming more conservative?

| January 25, 2011

That’s the question asked here. In the last few years, I’ve noticed more and more that science fiction has taken a bit of a turn to the right. I’ve also seen more than a few reviews lambasting those authors for their views — which seems to matter not a whit to their sales. So I […]
