My first exposure to Richard Matheson was probably back in the early 60s, and that marvelous anthology series, Rod Serling’s The Twilight Zone.  Matheson told amazing stories … of a man recovering from a nervous breakdown and what he thought he saw…Continue

Comment by Sky God on December 11, 2013 at 4:39pm

I'm new and was happy to see a sci-fi / fantasy group here at nexus. Happy, but not surprised because they seem to go together. I think that many scifi / fantasy authors in years past felt compelled to write in the genre for fear of their families safety. To write critical non-fiction or even thinly veiled fiction in a setting too similar for the comfort of those in power could a career or life ending mistake for many authors in certain times and cultures. Through creation of entirely new worlds, science fiction and fantasy can give those critical voices another level of  plausible-deniability to the sensitive egos of those in power. It can also relieve authors from the burden of being "realistic", i.e. reflecting how things are or have always been and instead allow imagining worlds that could be. And no goal has ever been achieved without first being imagined.
