May Highlighted Stories: Natural History on Alternate Earths

Saturday, May 5th, 2012 at 5:12 pm

One of the main things that sets science fiction apart from other genres is the question “what if”? SF usually looks to the future: what if a new technology develops? what if scientists discover a cure for cancer? what if we meet extraterrestrials? what if we colonize another? But it can also look to the past.

This month’s highlighted free fiction are set in the past right here on Earth, or at least an Earth, where the biology is just a bit different than we find on ours.
