Hard Versus Soft
An analysis of the two types of science fiction literature – ‘Hard’ and ‘Soft’. Hard is preoccupied with, and determined by, hard science and technological developments, and Soft is closer to the psychological/sociological concepts of ‘Inner Space’. What are the origins of these two mini-genres and which form of literature is more pertinent to our contemporary concerns?
Hosted by James DC, with guests Howard Aggregate, Ben Slotover
