  • Science Fiction - Hard Science Fiction


    Genre - Science Fiction

    Sub-genre - Hard Science Fiction

    Description - Stories whose scientific elements are reasonably detailed, well-researched and considered to be relatively plausible given current knowledge and technology.  Example: Jurassic Park, The Martian

    Common Tropes - This genre has a very, very strong aversion to anything fantasy or anything that can't be explained directly with ties to known science. The science in Hard Science Fiction is the driver. 

    Published Examples - Jurassic Park, Andromeda Strain, The Martian

    Good examples, @Myr.  Many of the stories of  David Brin  would also qualify as hard science fiction.  The Postman, his Uplift series, and others.
