Okay, I've been thinking about science fiction and all it's lovely forms.
We have the obvious: outerspace. Star Wars, Star Trek, Battlefield Earth, etc.
And the other obvious: Alien invasions: War of the Worlds, Signs, and--well Battlefield Earth :)
But what about all those great(?) movies of the 50s and 60s? The Fly, The Man with Two Brains, Attack of the 50 Foot Woman, etc. (okay, I wasn't born yet then so I can't recall many.)
So my question now is, in todays literary world, would books like Jurrasic Park, Timeline, Prey (can ya tell I'm a Crichton fan? *G*) be considered science fiction--with perhaps an added clarifyer--like 'action' or 'adventure'?
How would you describe the non-outerspace, non-alien type of sci-fi? Would you call it sci-fi at all?
