Are all stories set in the future science fiction?
Admittedly most science fiction stories are set in the future but they could be (and have been) set in all possible variations of the chronological scale.
- In the past
- In the present
- 'sideways in time'
- 'Under time'
- 'Over time'
- suspended in time
- and complete over-view of time
Writers write what is interesting to them. Science fiction writers wonder - constantly wonder - about the universe. Is there life on other worlds or are we all alone? What would life be like if we had two suns? How would a culture evolve if the dinosaurs had not died off? What will people in the future be like? Science fiction stories are stories of "why?" and "what if?" Science fiction is the most important… Read More
Short stories can be any genre you like; the distinction between short stories and other stories is that they are... short. That's all.
Ray Bradbury is commonly thought of as a 'science fiction' writer; this is not all though, because Bradbury describes himself as a "storyteller". He tells stories of every sort-- science fiction, fantasy, fiction, mystery....
No. Such stories are pure fiction and not good science at all.
Science Fiction stories existed long before the term 'Science Fiction' was invented or even Science for that matter. Many authors have been credited with the distinction of being the father of science fiction including Lucian of Samosata (120AD). It can be argued however that the legends of Daedalus are a form of gadgetry science fiction which would push the start of SF all the way back into the Bronze age.
The term 'science fiction' was coined in the 1930's however the genera has always been a part of literature ever since its earliest conception. Many authors and works have been cited as the first science fiction writer/story but such can be traced all the way back to the bronze age when oral traditions were all that there were. The best examples I can think of of ancient science fiction are the legends of Daedalus which… Read More
Why science fiction stories are not harmful for human's mind The only things that reading science fiction does to the human mind are: educates them about science Forces them to imagine Makes them think scientifically Promotes them to think about the future and to do something about it. Exhausts them so they are forced to take a nap. What could it possibly do that is harmful? Be a danger to the established order of government… Read More
Are you asking about friction or fiction? Friction is a physics term to describe a force to keep adjoining bodies from sliding. Fiction is a term used to describe literature that is "made up". Fiction can encompass a number of subjects including romance, history, westerns, law, fantasy, and science fiction. Thus, the term of Science Fiction would be a subset of all Fiction. There is some overlap between Science Fiction and Fantasy, and they are… Read More

Science Fiction is a subcategory of Fiction, meaning all Science Fiction is Fiction, but not all Fiction is Science Fiction. Science Fiction is typically futuristic, though not always, and sometimes involves space travel, time travel, alternate histories, new discoveries and technology, and/or alien lifeforms.
If someone need to collect all of the science fiction short stories by Issac Asimov what books he needs to buy provided he already has collected all of the novels?
Nightfall and other Stories. The Early Asimov
Alternate history is science fiction followed by a "what if" question, in a way that historical events were changed. One can find such stories all around the web.
It depends on the book or movie. Generally it does take place in the future because sci fi is all about aliens, timetravel, and technology.
Family stories, school stories, animal stories, mysteries, could all be included in realistic fiction.
Some would say that science fiction excludes fantasy but Arthur C. Clarke said, "Any significantly advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. Science fiction authors have mixed science fiction with all other forms of literature. There are science fiction lyrics to songs, science fiction poetry, science fiction mixed with humor, science fiction mixed with westerns, science fiction mixed with romance.
Science Fiction comes in all literary genres, but the single underlying concept is that they are based upon either real physics and science or upon a self-consistant suspension of disbelieve. Just as any sufficiently advanced technology appears to be magic, any sufficently systemized magic is science.
The best science fiction stories have at their heart some scientific principle either illustrated or extrapolated upon. Such as Mission of Gravity Neutron Star The Gods themselves The Moon Moth If I were to write a Science Fiction story I would first chose a principle and build a story around it.
A short story is a work of fiction; however novels and novellas are also works of fiction. Therefore one can say that all short stories are works of fiction, but not all works of fiction are short stories.
Some science fiction books are Dune by Frank Herbert, Beggars in Spain by Nancy Kress, 2001 by Arthur C. Clarke, the Robot books by Isaac Asimov, and Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.
Ummm... no. Science fiction things are usually based in the far future. Avatar, Star Trek, iRobot they are all sci-fi. Also sci-fi can be just in outer space not in the future. Also I know Star Wars is based a long time ago (in a galaxy far far away) but that would be concided science fiction too. The Ruins of Gorlan is fantasy, not Sci-Fi. If you have seen District9 that would be sci-fi too… Read More

Science fiction is a literary genre under fantasy. In some libraries, all fiction including science fiction are filed by the author's last name. In others, they separate science fiction books and put stickers on them with a rocket ship or an alien.
Only you can come up with a good name! Book Titles come from the story, not from some anonymous person on the internet! Think about your story - what is going on and who are the people involved? Science fiction stories are about the future, super powers, aliens, or all sorts of things that don't exist ... but might! Try to think of a title that shows what your story is about. Check out the… Read More
Stories without conflict are pretty boring.

It examines a dystopic society in the future that is shaped by 'dumbing down' the populous. All three of these concepts are typical SF material.
The Lottery would fall in that broad grey area that separates Science Fiction from regular fiction. It all comes down to how you define science fiction: Hard science fiction: Inclusion of the physical sciences: physics, chemistry, biology, nuclear science, astrophysics etc. In this case The Lottery would not be science fiction. Soft science fiction: Exploitation of the humanities: sociology, anthropology, Law, etc. In this case The Lottery could be considered Science Fiction. Interpolation and extrapolation… Read More
If you are talking about the Asimov quote in the end of the episode "200" it's: "Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinded critics and philosophers of today, but the core of science fiction, its essence has become crucial to our salvation, if we are to be saved at all."
Science fiction involves advanced technology as it often deals with imagined innovations in the field of technology, usually in the future. For a work of art to be considered science fiction, it must portray differences in the way the world functions in the work of art compared to the current time period. When envisioning a different future, most people think of the ability to live in space, have force fields and invisibility cloaks, as well… Read More
It is all science-fiction
The Old Testament contains traditions, legends, myths and historical accounts of the Hebrew people. It describes creation and the origins of the Hebrew people according to those traditions. Some of the more recent books are somewhat reliable as history, but even these are open to doubt as to their historicity and objectivity, and so should be studied with caution. The Books of Daniel and Esther, set during and shortly after the Babylonian Exile, were actually… Read More
Technology is applied science and invention so it fits perfectly into the science fiction universe. Rockets, blasters, phasers, time travel machines, robots, androids, and computers are all inventions that make it into science fiction novels.
Science fiction is a genre of fiction that involves future technology or things that are interesting in theory but we wouldn't want to happen in reality. It usually contains a message to the readers, a theme, warning of the harmful consequences of the excessive use of technology. --- adding --- Hard Science Fiction is generally an attempt to predict what inventions will occur next and what their social impact will be on the human race… Read More

The word "fiction" means "made up". Some or all of the science in the story may be real, but the story is made up.

You all but certainly can't. None has been created yet. If you can figure it out, tell us. The teleporters you see in different television shows, movies, stories, should be considered fantasy / science fiction.
Inside the Eiffel Tower there is a restaurant named after a science fiction person who is that person?
Jules Verne, the Grand old Man, or forefather, Patriarch, of all science fiction writers.
All American Girl stories have so far been fiction. Rebecca is just an historical fiction character.
Fiction. Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson is sort of the archetype of all pirate stories. It is available for free download at gutenberg.org.
I survived is a non-fiction book. They are actually true stories written through the eyes of a boy who experienced all of the events.
It is a post nuclear holocaust book, so it is set in the future. The author plainly knows nothing at all about radiation, treating it as though it were an infection that could be caught.
