Science into Fiction

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


A collaboration between leading scientists and literary authors, this unique experiment creates a new strain of science fiction by extending the repertoire of the genre beyond the common places of space travel, time travel, and artificial intelligence. Through the use of diverse, credible, and contemporary research areas--from Planck length to plankton and virtual conversations between Wittgenstein and Turing to future civilisations torn asunder by differences over particle physics--these stories reinstate the furnace of scientific endeavor. Comprised of research from practicing scientists at Manchester University and the stories of established authors--including Frank Cottrell Boyce, Geoff Ryman, Patricia Duncker, and Sara Maitland--this anthology attempts to take science fiction into new, scientifically realistic fields while explaining the theory and technology behind each story.
