James Cambias, Ahmed Khaled Tawfik, Vandana Singh and I all responded to a number of questions about SF/F for Node:
Do you think that science fiction can or should predict the future?
I think science fiction should engage with the future. That doesn’t mean predict it, though that’s often the common perception. We also warn about the future. Beg you not to go down a certain path. Warn incessantly about horrible possible futures. Wonder if a certain future would be interesting. Dream about a certain future. There are many different ways to engage.
