Out of This World
Science fiction and fantasy can take us to space or another dimension to fight a monster or meet aliens, but some things ring true no matter where you are. How do writers use the tools of science fiction and fantasy to tell important truths and make us think and feel powerful emotions? And why do we love these kinds of stories so much? Seth Dickinson, Cory Doctorow, Constance Fay, and David Slayton will discuss!
