I am curious as to what other writers think of the future of science fiction ? and what they think of the current state of the Genre ?

I think that a few of them mixed together can work, and would make the story a bit more dynamic. I can't speak for the industry itself, but personally I think the mind is always a very interesting thing to explore and to use as a main- or even sub- theme.

I've taken some sociology classes and have read recently published books on topic number 7, so I'd have to go with that. Granted, they weren't science fiction books, but I don't think anyone can deny that new developments like Facebook are generating some sort of discussion. That kind of thing is bound to seep over into the writing world, right?
