Like colliding space rocks and supernovas, science fiction is infinitely varied and exciting. Fans, scholars and authors celebrated SF's creative adaptability at the Science Fiction Research Association's 37th Annual Meeting in White Plains, New York, June 22-25, 2006.

Fans, scholars and authors celebrated SF's creative adaptability at the Science Fiction Research Association's 37th Annual Meeting in White Plains, New York, June 22-25, 2006. The conference theme was "When Genres Collide." Science fiction has often dovetailed with fantasy, mystery, and horror, and it is alive and well on television and in the movies. Even in hard SF, readers might encounter variations of "ghosts" and "gods" in the stories. With the ever-evolving cyberpunk movement, the rise of slipstream fiction and tales that hover somewhere between mainstream and the fantastic, the boundaries between science fiction and related genres seem to be increasingly blurred. The conference brought together noted speculative fiction writers and critics, among them Guest of Honor Norman Spinrad, Nancy Kress, Nalo Hopkinson, R. Garcia y Robertson, William Sleator, and Bruce Taylor. Their plenary session reflections on colliding genres and the current state of science fiction are featured in this volume, together with a generous selection of conference essays by noted science fiction scholars.

    Some rather good articles in here, and I'm not just saying that as a contributor. :) Some rather good articles in here, and I'm not just saying that as a contributor. :)
