Science Fiction Books

The origins of the science fiction genre can be traced to the ancient work of Lucian of Samosata's "A True Story," a satirical adventure that showcased fantastical elements like space travel, encounters with alien beings, and surreal landscapes. Voltaire's "Micromegas" added depth to the genre with its exploration of cosmic themes and extraterrestrial life. Written during the Enlightenment era, this novella contemplated philosophical questions through the eyes of beings from other planets, challenging conventional thinking of the time. C.S. Lewis's "That Hideous Strength" furthered the evolution of science fiction by blending elements of speculative fiction with Christian allegory. Lewis wove together themes of technology, morality, and the supernatural in a thought-provoking narrative that explored the consequences of unchecked scientific ambition. Later on modern classics like Frank Herbert's "Dune" emerged, which is set in a distant future where politics, religion, and ecology intertwine.
