Science Fiction has evolved over the past fifty years. New sub genres have entered this realm. These are exciting times for sci-fi fans and publishers like myself. Some hot new books have come along as well. Self published authors like that of ‘The Atlantis Gene’ have given the big publishing houses a hard time. The growth of digital and e books has helped accelerate this growth and ushered in a new era. From Jules Verne to Isaac Asimov, the sci-fi genre has evolved into multiple ‘sub-species’, if you will. These sub-species, as I lovingly like to call the sub genres, have evolved further. Some of these include steam punk, diesel punk and cyberpunk. These are awesome sub genres for sci-fi lovers to explore.
Even the traditional paper based comics industry is getting a makeover. Reading comics digitally is becoming more and more popular. Yes both the big boys of the comics industry, i.e DC & Marvel, are now selling digitally as well.
The best thing about science fiction is that it is only limited by one’s imagination. Maybe that is why I have been in love with this genre since I was a boy. Some amazing things have happened to Mr. Spock as well; he smiles sometimes!!!
