For Readers: It Really Happened!


Many TV shows, especially the “procedurals” like NCIS, CSI and their ilk, employee the “ripped from the headlines” strategy. They take a current headline story and run with it in a fictionalized form.

This can work in speculative fiction too – stories that are directly inspired by current events.

So my questions today: Do you like stories like this? And if so, what are some of your favorites?
