About Science Fiction & Fantasy

In sci-fi and fantasy audiobooks, fiction and storytelling are used to explore futuristic and fantastical concepts, particularly those based on science and technology. In the earliest days of science fiction, fantasy elements predominated; the Epic of Gilgamesh is often cited as an early precursor to our modern understanding of sci-fi. Early sci-fi works such as One Thousand and One Nights, while later works like Gulliver's Travels are still cited as examples. Mary Shelley's Frankenstein was an early example of science fiction tropes in the 19th century. Our modern conception of science fiction, on the other hand, includes robots, cyborgs, interstellar travel, and a host of other sci-fi tropes and themes, all making for enthralling listening. Artificial intelligence, the future, and apocalyptic plots and settings are common themes in this popular combined genre. When listening to science fiction and fantasy audiobooks, it's commonplace for listeners to wonder if technology is here to help or harm us. Newer science fiction and fantasy includes bestsellers like Good Omens, written by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, who are both legends of the genre. Newer sci-fi tends to revolve around environmental issues and the larger impact of biotechnology, nanotechnology and the internet in general. Listening to an audiobook about science fiction can help you see the future.
