Lake, Jay & Nestvold, Ruth. (2005). “Engendering Utopia”. Course goals: 1. to have fun reading and discussing the ideas and themes in science fiction and fantasy, 2. to broaden our knowledge of what's in sf and fantasy, 3. to deepen our appreciation of what's in sf and fantasy, 4. to practice critical reading and critical thinking (what are the patterns, the "hidden agendas," and the assumptions in this kind of fiction?). Here, as in any 300-level literature course, I would like us to learn to read more carefully, and to explain clearly in writing and in class discussions what we feel and think, and what features of the books we've read and what aspects of our own experience produce these reactions.

Significant sf short stories, novels, and films will be studied. Discuss your favourite SF and Fantasy games, TV series and movies here. Sure, I can say a certain hundred novels are great, because of their impact on me, but I can't pretend to judge their value for other people by my own narrow standards. If this were true, the moon would float away from the Earth, and our entire solar system would drift apart. Post-apocalyptic alien invasion stories are a staple in the Speculative Fiction genre so when a debut novel comes along telling such a story it either...

The decisions made by Janna are clearly right for her. Dick's The Man in the High Castle, was recently turned into a series by Amazon. x The concept of alternate histories enables vast possibilities.

Now, most people will do it naturally, but you'll want to look out for sections in your story where the styles don't match. J. how it's really done, with plenty of personalities and jawdropping moments in time and space. Wylie and Balmer were mainstream writers and not part of the SF crowd and the book reflects a more workmanlike, serious approach to it's subject matter. In the first, hilarious volume of Adams' Hitchhiker's series, reluctant galactic traveler Arthur Dent gets swept up in some literally Earth-shattering events involving aliens, sperm whales, a depressed robot, mice who are more than they seem, and some really, really bad poetry.

Now, in the same year that the so-called mens’ rights movement was driven into a froth by Mad Max: Fury Road, in which Charlize Theron seeks to rescue a bunch of women from sex slavery (and Max is little more than a sidekick), another flashpoint emerged: Puppygate. When the monolith is finally unearthed and sees sunlight for the first time, it sends out a radio signal that is fixed on one of Saturn’s moons. We also were among the first to weigh in on the dangers of nuclear power (see for example Lester del Rey's 1956 novel Nerves ).

They claim to have been hoping for a child "later", but secretly this meant "never". The focus of the course, however, will be on students' experience of 20th-century writers (mostly, but not exclusively American) including Heinlein, Bradbury, Pohl, Le Guin, Russ, Atwood, Lem, Blish, Ellison, Pynchon, and Piercy. And most times they are followed by an Arabic numeral (2, 3, 4 etc.) or the designation of prime. With the advent of sophisticated screen plays, design and special effects however, the legacy of the Potter films is assured for a long time to come and it is difficult to conceive of fantasy films that could put the series in its place; along with The Lord of the Rings trilogy, the Harry Potter series of film will be the benchmark by which all other film fantasy is measured for some time to come.
