Today’s topic was inspired by Angel:
I’d say most speculative fiction is deadly-serious – in sci fi, will this planet continue to support us? Will we get to the stars?
In fantasy, will we be able to defeat the evil-warlock and save the damsel (hey, what’s the male version of damsel?) in distress?
In paranormal, will the wolves or vampires win the fight for world domination?
But sometimes I want something a little lighter. :)
So how about you? Do you like your spec fic deadly serious, as a writer or reader? Or are you more of a Hitchhiker’s Guide or Discworld (or hey, even Xanth) type who embraces humor in sci fi, fantasy and paranormal?
Come join the discussion.
