One Great Thing About Science Fiction

The genre of SF Alsford quote

“The genre of SF, it seems to me, has the capacity to permit everyone, irrespective of their educational background, access to debates, discussions and speculations about some of the biggest questions that concern the human race.”

– Mike Alsford, What If?: Religious Themes in Future Fiction p. vii.

The book has a number of similarly nice quotes about things that make science fiction a particularly great genre for addressing contemporary social issues, as well as for exploring philosophical and religious topics.
