I’m a big fan of classic Sci Fi – the older the better. H G Wells, John Wyndham, etc. I’m currently reading the John Carter of Mars books, and am very amused at how science has corrected ‘knowledge’ that informed such work, e.g. the presence of canals on Mars. But I know some people who get mad at bad science in sci fi, to the point that they’ll avoid anything where the science is ropey. I don’t much care if space is silent, I enjoy the KERBLAMMO!
Are you a purist for the science in sci fi?
