National Science Fiction Day promotes the celebration of science fiction as a genre, its creators, history, and various media, too.

On January 2nd annually, millions of science fiction fans across the United States read and watch their favorites in science fiction. 

Read how you can celebrate here.

The imagination of writer’s holds no bounds. Go back a few hundred years and their science fiction is now our reality. The use of electricity, and airplanes for instance, were never imagined as the every day occurrence they are today.

Books these days tend to overlap in genre. They are often mixed with fantasy, post apocalyptic, shifters, and romance. They visit new worlds in space ships. They go places we never imagined, and humans take on many different forms.

“For me science fiction is a way of thinking, a way of logic that bypasses a lot of nonsense. It allows people to look directly at important subjects.”

Gene Roddenberry, the creator of Star Trek.

I’ve often wondered what a man from from 1700s would think of our world now. Would they marvel at things never believed possible? These days anything is, especially in the mind of writers.

So why not celebrate this special day by with one of these short read books?
