It is frequently argued that cyberpunk's most significant contribution has been its development of a new dystopian realism that takes a long, hard look at the near-future. This category is often disparagingly referred to as "science fantasy" by people who are serious about Sci Fi (however this is not to be confused with Science Fantasy in the sense of sci fi that incorporates fantasy elements). One tight ensemble shares dozens of rolls and everyone (from the movie stars to the newcomers to the veteran character actors) is pulled out of their comfort zone in remarkable ways.

There are people who seem to use "hard" to denote any work that contains any science or technology, or is obviously not fantasy (or even, is not obviously fantasy); it may be that these people are suffering from "science envy" and believe that hard ScF is better than other ScF because it contains more science, so they try to boost their favourite ScF books by claiming that they are hard. As Travis Glass (played by James Bulliard) turned 30 years old, he realized his life since high school was pretty much wasted.

The Wachowski brothers recently made a Speed Racer live action film, but it received mixed reviews and did poorly at the box office. I also put an unreasonable amount of time into copying and satirizing the self-presentation style I imagined such a firm using: an unholy mashup of the pompous styling of corporate law firm websites like Skadden’s and the Apple-derivative style so common amongst contemporary tech startups.

Please log in to add or reply to comments. Hard science fiction may be a quite limited literary form, but the fact that it can create its own kind of literary experience�even when it has no other claim to literary value�shows that it is a valid literary form, and worthy of respect in its own right. PN 3435 W64 1966 Wolfe, Gary K.: The Known and the Unknown: The Iconography of Science Fiction. Brians finds most of these post-WWII attempts to deal with the reality of the bomb "neither scientifically accurate nor artistically satisfying'' (253).

Red Mars explores the initial colonization of Mars. As for Force powers, bear in mind that the energy imparted to a supersonic bullet (Ek = 1/2 m (v2), remember) is around 3.5 kJ*. The work also contains a detailed study of China's funerary stelae, and the mythical animals used to decorate them. These novels focus on the potential dangers of such technology. Women writers (such as Ursula Le Guin, Joanna Russ, and James Tiptree/Alice Sheldon), in contrast, focused upon such soft sciences as psychology and sociology and produced pure literary experimentation.
