Science Fiction ebooks Great definition of Science Fiction as per http://www.fantasy-magazine.com/non-fiction/is-it-science-fiction-or-science-fantasy/:

According to the Henderson Institute of Knowing Knowledge, there are three general levels of science fiction.

  • Hard Science Fiction
  • Soft Science Fiction
  • Science Fantasy
  • The three levels are not to be confused with definitions like cyberpunk, steampunk, space opera, social scifi, military scifi, etcetera scifi. Those are science fiction subgenres, not levels, and all of the subgenres can potentially fall into any of the three levels. Hard science fiction has science or technology that is central to the plot, and all of the key science or technology is explained and entirely possible given currently known scientific laws, theories and constraints. It involves no magical or supernatural elements.

    Soft science fiction is like hard science fiction, but not as scientifical. Perhaps the plausible science or technology is not explained — they have hyperdrive spaceships that work by pushing a big shiny button. Or the explanation is pseudo-science that sounds plausibly whiz-bangy but doesn’t really explain anything. Also, stories whose scientific elements are the "soft sciences" – sociology, psychology, anthropology – would likely be considered soft science fiction no matter how detailed and possible. There are still no purely impossible elements involved.

    Science fantasy is like hard or soft scifi but mixed with magical or supernatural elements, or that uses alternate or imaginary science and technology that is simply impossible given all known scientific laws, theories and constraints.

    The Freedom's launch may have been a disaster, but Mr. Lucas had still been there to keep the crew focused and tell them all what to do. Well one single botched mission had taken care of that, and now the others had voted to put Jason in charge.

    Great. Now all he had to do was literally figure out how to save the world.
