I think science fiction is at its best when it ignites our mind with imaginative, daring visions of beautiful possible futures, and the drive to turn them into reality. Recently I joined The World Transformed hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon to discuss the importance of positive stories in science fiction, and why there are not enough positive stories in today’s science fiction.
Star Bridge, by Jack Williamson and James E. Gunn (1955), is a solid, entertaining and well written vintage space opera. Of course the book shows its age, but like old wine, not like an old gadget. Highly recommended.
