"I have noted myself how science fiction is considerably on the wane, with space fantasy and standard fantasy being the dominant groups. Audiences don't feel the need to analyse any of what they see today. This fits with Jonny's point as the simplest fantasy explanations are more popular because they demand less rational problem analysing from the subject but more credulity, which the masses seem to have in spades"
I couldn't agree more with this. I stopped reading Sci fi 'in the main' well over 20 years ago for just this reason.
that and the fat that Hollywood was busy making reality out of the "Amazing Adventures" I had been having in my mind's eye for years.
now every book you pick up relies on Deus ex Machina at some point.
so I delved into history, which had been my passion well before my teen years. and of course there's very little Good Hi-Fi....so
Old Kingdom Bookworm it is :)
