Putting the Science in Fiction is an engaging look into how to write science fiction realistically I learned things uestions things and even had a laugh I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone writing science FictionThe Book Is Comprised Of Essays By book is comprised of essays by experts telling of things in pop culture that them cringe the majority culture that makes them The majority the essays then tell you how to fix that in your own writing Many of these have a sense of humor making education fun without having the feeling that eople are yelling at youI thought some of the essays were too short I wanted to know But each writer was given a certain amount of space to explain a variety of topics including FTL speed contained ecosystems lab work and how to grow organs The majority of the essays are easy to understand and if they weren t to begin with the authors made the ideas clear to use amateurs There was only one or two that I truly didn t understandThis collection is a fun and educational experience into the world of science and how it can enrich your fiction I received an ARC from the Les Ténébreuses - Tome I - La Fin d'un monde publisher all opinions are my own Originallyublished at Reading RealityI have served on various book judging committees over the years Recently I was Karneval, Vol. 4 part of a groupicking the best science fiction for the year I m not going to say where or when but it s a list where the jury is still outBut it made me think about what makes good science fiction and conversely what doesn t Which led me to not one but two books in the virtually towering TBR The Hiding Place pile Putting the Science in Fiction and The Science of Science Fiction both of which have been released this monthIt seemed like a golden opportunity to do a compare and contrast instead of a traditional reviewI thought that these books would work together well Putting the Science in Fiction was all about the inputs It is exactly what I expected it to be Much fiction both written and filmed includes some science in some form Police dramas and mysteries deal with forensic science Medical dramas and not a few mysteries deal with medical science Science fiction of course is all about taking science out to the nth degree and thenlaying with itBut lay eople often get things wrong There are lots of things about science that get shortchanged or simplified in order to make better drama Anyone who is an expert in whatever has just gotten completely screwed up will cringe at just how far off base the writer or director has just taken the science in their storyWe all do it for our own fields And when it happens it throws the knowledgeable reader out of the story no matter how good the rest of it might bePutting the Science in Fiction turns out to be a surprisingly readable collection of essays by science and engineering experts explaining the very very basics of their fields to those of us whose expertise is somewhere else It serves as a terrific guide for any writer who wants to follow the dictum of write what you know by learning so they know so they have to write aboutOn my other hand The Science of Science Fiction is not what I expected it to be I was kind of expecting it to Science and technology have starring roles in a wide range of genres science fiction fantasy thriller mystery and Unfortunately many depictions of technical subjects in literature film and television are ure fiction A basic understanding of biology hysics engineering and medicine will help you create realistic stories that satisfy discerning readersThis book brings together scientists hysicians engineers and other experts to help youUnderstand the basic rincip. E about SF that did well not necessarily in the science aspect at the time so much as in the way that it captured the imagination even to the oint where the SF created the science it ostulatedThere is a famous story about Star Trek The Original Series and the invention of the cell hone that comes to mindBut that s not where this book went Although that would be a great book and I hope someone writes itInstead The Science of Science Fiction reads like a history of SF written thematically rather than chronologically It takes some of the basic tenets and tropes of SF and lays out where they began sometimes surprisingly long ago to where they are nowIt s an interesting APPROACH BUT IT DIDN T UITE but it didn t uite for this readerBy way of comparison both books talk about the science and the influences of Michael Crichton s classic work of SF Jurassic ParkPutting the Science in Fiction does two things and it does them really well First it conveys that sensawunder that SF does when it is at its best The author of the essay is a microbiologist who uts the science of the book in context both the context of what was known at the time it was written OMG 1990 and what has been discovered since was known at the time it was written OMG 1990 and what has been discovered since comes to the conclusion that he didn t do too badly based on what was known at the time Discoveries since have made his science fictional extrapolation less likely than it originally seemed It s hard to fault the author for thatBut what the author of the essay also does is to show how the book not only grabbed his interest and attention but continues to hold it to the The Undisputed Greatest Writer of All Time: A Collection of Poetry present day even though he knows the science isn t remotely feasible The book does a great job of taking just enough of the science in a direction that we want to believe isossibleAfter all who wouldn t want to see a real live dinosaur Under very controlled conditions Much controlled conditions than occur in the book of courseThe Science of Science Fiction also discusses Jurassic Park A classic is a classic after all But instead of talking about the science of cloning the author goes into a couple of other directions First he sets Jurassic Park within the context of other lost world works of science fiction That s a tradition that goes back to Jules Verne and even further But it feels like the fit of Jurassic Park as StoryBranding: Creating Stand-Out Brands Through The Power of Story part of that lost world tradition doesn t uite fitThe otherart of this Jurassic Park discussion has to do with the way that scientists are It's A Wonderfully Sexy Life portrayed in SF Science makes the storyossible Scientists in fiction tend to work toward Lignin Biodegradation proving they can do something in thisarticular case Pure Chance proving they can clone dinosaurs fromreserved DNA It takes a different kind of scientist someone dealing in chaos theory to The Lady and the Lionheart posit that just because it CAN be done doesn t mean it SHOULD be done That s a discussion I would love to see expanded And I d have liked this book if it had been expanded hereReality Ratings These two books struck me completely differently Putting the Science in Fiction is both readable and does what it sets out to do excellentoints for a work designed to help writers do a informed job of including scienc. Les of science technology and medicine that are freuently featured in fictionAvoid common itfalls and misconceptions to ensure technical accuracyWrite realistic and compelling scientific elements that will captivate readersBrainstorm and develop new science and technology based story ideasWhether writing about mutant monsters rogue viruses giant spaceships or even murders and espionage Putting the Science in Fiction will have something to help every writer craft. E in their fiction I therefore give Putting the Science in Fiction a BHowsomever The Science Of Science The Science of Science doesn t work nearly as well It reads much like a history of SF than it treats with the science of SF That it breaks that history up into themes rather than treat it chronologically makes it jump around a bit As SF history it s not nearly as readable as Astounding or An Informal History of the Hugos or What Makes This Book So Great While I will be tempted to dip back into Putting the Science in Fiction again when I need some explanatory material on a articular science in SF I won t be inclined to go back to The Science of Science Fiction I give The Science of Science Fiction a COne final recommendation Do not read the chapter in Putting the Science in Fiction about lausible methods for kicking off the Zombie Apocalypse at breakfast Or any other meal Full disclosure I am one of the author contributors of this book The editor Dan Koboldt ut together an excellent top notch collection of articles about a variety of science and tech fields that are commonly misused or misrepresented in Schilder's Struggle for the Unity of the Church popular sci fi These misuses drive actual scientists and techeople in audiences batty because the whole suspension of disbelief crashes when you know the A (kinda) Country Christmas process or underlying science just doesn t work that way It drives me batty too which is why I wrote the article CGI is Not Made By Computers I found most of these articles to be illuminating and wellut Proud to be art of it A valuable resource for writers who incorporate science into their work Drawn from the author s opular blog Science in Sci fi Fact in Fantasy with scientists medical rofessionals engineers and others weighing in on an array of scientific subjects often written about inaccurately in fiction Highly recommended Thanks to the author ublisher and NetGalley for the ARC Opinions are mine Pub Date 16 Oct 2018 PuttingTheScienceInFiction NetGalley Disclosure I m the editor of and a contributing author to this book Putting the Science in Fiction is a reference for genre fiction writers that was developed from my Science in Sci fi Fact in Fantasy blog series Each week I invite engineers scientists doctors and other experts to discuss common misconceptions about their field and to offer advice for writers Who Want To Get The want to get the right Now we ve collected much of that knowledge into a book with Writers right Now we ve collected much of that knowledge into a book with Writers book contains 59 chapters including several never before National Geographic Kids Almanac 2020 published entries There s also a foreword by bestselling author Chuck Wendig that in my opinion is worth therice of the book by itself The 40 or so expert contributors to this book have collectively endured than 200 years of graduate study in their chosen fields They know what they re talking about But don t worry we ve kept the mansplaining to a minimum in fact two thirds of our contributors identify as femaleWe can t teach you everything there is to know about these highly technical subjects but we can show you enough to be dangerous Armed with this book you ll be able to avoid common itfalls and create realistic compelling stories.
