“The Future of Scientifiction,” Miles J. Breuer, MD, 1929 (essay)

“The Future of Scientifiction,” Miles J. Breuer, MD, 1929 – (essay) Breuer’s short essay on the appeal and future of “scientifiction.”  He argues that writers write about “what they do” in real life and their writing should reflect the central concerns of their age.  As science becomes a fact of everyday life, such that we now live and think “science,” readers will want stories that reflect the impact of science on their fears, dreams, and lives.
