An Impromptu Survey
This is the sort of thinking I get up to early in the morning when I should be sleeping1.
I am actually going somewhere with this, but you’ll have to trust and watch me slowly building up layers of ideas and opinion into a coherent set of thoughts before it will start to make sense2. There’s a few more question I need to ask after this stage of the thought process. There is however a large amount of zugzwang going on here, and I only have a vague idea of where this is heading.
Yes, some of you will have seen his on Twitter, and this is related to the last note I made here.
SF = Speculative Fiction = Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror.
Why do we read / watch SF?
Why do we read / watch any kind of story?
What makes SF special to some of us?
Why does it entertain us?
Ideally I need as many answers as possible. However I am willing to accept none and make my own blind and rash proclamations when thinking later. =)
