Hello Spec Vis fans

Postby ecsange » Fri Jan 27, 2012 5:59 pm

Hello Speculative Vision and Spec fic fans. I'm new to speculative Vision, although a fan of speculative fiction. :) I'm looking forward to reading some of your posts and participating in the forum. Curiosity - is it easier to define speculative fiction than fiction in general? Love to hear what you think.

Welcome to SV!

Fiction is any story that is imagined rather than being an account of actual events. Although all fiction is imagination to some degree, Speculative Fiction is an umbrella term used to describe all of the more fantastical sub-genres of fiction. Science Fiction, Horror, Fantasy, Superheroes, and Alternate History are all examples of Speculative Fiction sub-genres. Each of those has it own sub-genres, mostly because humans love to categorize things :)
