A to Z: Theme

A to Z Blogging: R is for Robotics

Robotics Advancement in science and technology in our present day lives makes robotics within science fiction all the more real - whether it's a child toy, an android or an evil legion of robots taking over the planet (think Terminator). For this blog post, I shall...

A to Z Blogging: Q is for Quasars

Quasars Quasars are defined as 'an astronomical entity that emits incredibly high levels of electromagnetic radiation (including light). The amount of energy emitted by a quasar dwarfs even the brightest stars,' (About.com) Believed to have formed when matter drawn...

A to Z Blogging: P is for Planets.

Planets I've written a blog post on Asteroids, and briefly touched on Jupiter,  so  now it's time to stretch a little further afield and talk about the multitude of planets existing within and beyond our solar syste Planets, both real and imagined, are of huge...

A to Z Blogging: O is for Online Worlds

Online Worlds O was a tricky letter to find a theme for and I swear I'm not cheating. 'Online Worlds' is a theme in its own right according to the Encyclopedia of Science fiction, not only that, but I've had the pleasure of reading a couple of books using this very...

A to Z Blogging: N is for Nuclear War

Nuclear War (and the ensuing 'winter') I was watching a program a while back about adverts that used to appear on our television screens during the nineteen-seventies. One advert was produced by the UK government and carried the slogan 'Protect and Survive.' I had...

A to Z Blogging: M is for Military Scifi

Military Sci-Fi  As far as I can gather (as this is one of my least favourite sub-genres of science-fiction) Military Sci-Fi uses futuristic technology and weapons, often to negotiate fights with alien civilisations, or conduct battles in space, although I've read...

A to Z Blogging: L is for Life

Life Or more specifically, Life on other planets. I do not, for one moment, believe we are 'alone' in this universe. Life came into being on our own planet, albeit with a specific set of criteria, but just because we haven't found proof of other lifeforms, it doesn't...

A to Z Blogging: K is for… Keep

Keep And yes, this really is the best I can do for K. I've spent ages trying to come up with a theme, and besides talking about Klingons or Kyptonite, I didn't see what else I could talk about. So, a keep, according to The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction is the scifi...

A to Z Blogging: J is for Jupiter

Jupiter Which is another non-theme, but trying to find a theme for J proved quite impossible (though the odds are I'll think of something after hitting the publish button... Anyhow... Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system with a mass two and half times...

A to Z Blogging: I is for Invasion

Invasion An invasion of our home planet is another regular theme in science fiction - Independence day, War of the Worlds and the Day the Earth still to name but a few. As with the other themes mentioned through the A-Z blogging challenge, different writers have...

A to Z Blogging: H is for Hyperspace

Hyperspace While this isn't theoretically a theme, it does play an important role in some science fiction books, especially those with established planets, colonies, and spaceships. Characters need a way to get from planet A to planet B and transverse thousands, if...

A to Z Blogging: G is for Global Warming

Global warming Another popular theme in science fiction. I have read numerous books and watched countless films with Global Warming at the fore, be it snow, rain, ice, wind, tornados, tsunamis, or an all out end of the world as we know it… they all arise from this...
