Science fiction fantasy genre conroe

  1. 1. Genre SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
  2. 2. ROD SERLING SAYS… • “Fantasy is the impossible made probable. Science fiction is the improbable made possible."
  3. 3. FANTASY CRITERIA • Many works within the genre take place in imaginary worlds where magic and magical creatures are common • The identifying traits of fantasy are the inclusion of fantastic elements in a self-coherent (internally consistent) setting, where inspiration from mythology and folklore remains a consistent theme. • Within such a structure, any location of the fantastical element is possible: it may be hidden in, or leak into the apparently real world setting, it may draw the characters into a world with such elements, or it may occur entirely in a fantasy world setting, where such elements are part of the world. • Essentially, fantasy follows rules of its own making, allowing magic and other fantastic devices to be used and still be internally cohesive.
  4. 4. • FROM THE CRITERIA: Any location of the fantastical element is possible: it may be hidden in, or leak into the apparently real world setting, • The farm and the fair are the apparently real world settings. • The fantastical elements include the talking animals and a world that the humans know nothing about. CHARLOTTE’S WEB BY E.B. WHITE
  5. 5. SCIENCE FICTION CRITERIA • A time setting in the future, in alternative timelines, or in a historical past that contradicts known facts of history or the archaeological record. • A spatial setting or scenes in outer space (e.g. spaceflight), on other worlds, or on subterranean earth. • Characters that include aliens, mutants, androids, or humanoid robots and other types of characters arising from a future human evolution. • Futuristic or plausible technology such as ray guns, teleportation machines, and humanoid computers. •
  6. 6. SCIENCE FICTION CRITERIA CONTINUED • Scientific principles that are new or that contradict accepted physical laws, for example time travel, wormholes, or faster- than-light travel or communication. • New and different political or social systems, e.g. dystopian, post-scarcity, or post-apocalyptic. • Paranormal abilities such as mind control, telepathy, telekinesis, and teleportation. • Other universes or dimensions and travel between them.
