Characters Ç eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ✓ Dan Koboldt Putting the Science in Fiction Expert Advice for Writing with Authenticity in Science Fiction Fantasy Other Genres Read è eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Dan Koboldt ✓ 8 Free read Better fictionPutting the Science in Fiction collects articles from Science in Sci fi Fact in Fantasy Dan Koboldt's popular blog series for authors and fans of speculative fiction dankoboldtcomscience in scifi Each article discusses an element of sci fi or fantasy with an expert in that field Scientists engineers medical professionals and others share their insights in order to debunk the myths correct the misconceptions and offer advice on getting the details rig. Originally published at Reading RealityI have served on various book judging committees over the years Recently I was part of a group picking the best science fiction for the year I m not going to say where or when but it s a list where the jury is still outBut it made me think about what makes good science fiction and conversely what doesn t Which led me to not one but two books in the virtually towering TBR pile Putting the Science in Fiction and The Science of Science Fiction both of which have been released this monthIt seemed like a golden opportunity to do a compare and contrast instead of a traditional reviewI thought that these books would work together well Putting the Science in Fiction was all about the inputs It is exactly what I expected it to be Much fiction both written and filmed includes some science in some form Police dramas and mysteries deal with forensic science Medical dramas and not a few mysteries deal with medical science Science fiction of course is all about taking science out to the nth degree and then playing with itBut lay people often get things wrong There are lots of things about science that get shortchanged or simplified in order to make better drama Anyone who is an expert in whatever has just gotten completely screwed up will cringe at just how far off base the writer or director has just taken the science in their storyWe all do it for our own fields And when it happens it throws the knowledgeable reader out of the story no matter how good the rest of it might bePutting the Science in Fiction turns out to be a surprisingly readable collection of essays by science and engineering experts explaining the very very basics of their fields to those of us whose expertise is somewhere else It serves as a terrific guide for any writer who wants to follow the dictum of write what you know by learning so they know so they have to write aboutOn my other hand The Science of Science Fiction is not what I expected it to be I was kind of expecting it to be about SF that did well not necessarily in the science aspect at the time so much as in the way that it captured the imagination even to the point where the SF created the science it postulatedThere is a famous story about Star Trek The Original Series and the invention of the cell phone that comes to mindBut that s not where this book went Although that would be a great book and I hope someone writes itInstead The Science of Science Fiction reads like a history of SF written thematically rather than chronologically It takes some of the basic tenets and tropes of SF and lays out where they began sometimes surprisingly long ago to where they are nowIt s an interesting approach but it didn t uite gel for this readerBy way of comparison both books talk about the science and the influences of Michael Crichton s classic work of SF Jurassic ParkPutting the Science in Fiction does two things and it does them really well First it conveys that sensawunder that SF does when it is at its best The author of the essay is a microbiologist who puts the science of the book in context both the context of what was known at the time it was written OMG 1990 and what has been discovered since and comes to the conclusion that he didn t do too badly based on what was known at the time Discoveries since have made his science fictional extrapolation less likely than it originally seemed It s hard to fault the author for thatBut what the author of the essay also does is to show how the book not only grabbed his interest and attention but continues to hold it to the present day even though he knows the science isn t remotely feasible The book does a great job of taking just enough of the science in a direction that we want to believe is possibleAfter all who wouldn t want to see a real live dinosaur Under very controlled conditions Much controlled conditions than occur in the book of courseThe Science of Science Fiction also discusses Jurassic Park A classic is a classic after all But instead of talking about the science of cloning the author goes into a couple of other directions First he sets Jurassic Park within the context of other lost world works of science fiction That s a tradition that goes back to Jules Verne and even further But it feels like the fit of Jurassic Park as part of that lost world tradition doesn t uite fitThe other part of this Jurassic Park discussion has to do with the way that scientists are portrayed in SF Science makes the story possible Scientists in fiction tend to work toward proving they can do something in this particular case proving they can clone dinosaurs from preserved DNA It takes a different kind of scientist someone dealing in chaos theory to posit that just because it CAN be done doesn t mean it SHOULD be done That s a discussion I would love to see expanded And I d have liked this book if it had been expanded hereReality Ratings These two books struck me completely differently Putting the Science in Fiction is both readable and does what it sets out to do excellent points for a work designed to help writers do a informed job of including science in their fiction I therefore give Putting the Science in Fiction a BHowsomever The Science of Science Fiction doesn t work nearly as well It reads much like a history of SF than it treats with the science of SF That it breaks that history up into themes rather than treat it chronologically makes it jump around a bit As SF history it s not nearly as readable as Astounding or An Informal History of the Hugos or
