how is science fiction different from adventure novels?
That is a really good question. If you’re talking about something published recently, then if it takes place more than five minutes into the future or if one of the main plot drivers is something that you wouldn’t be wholly surprised to see as the subject of a BBC science documentary, what you’ve got there is science fiction. If not, it’s probably an adventure story.
If you’re talking about something published prior to about 1970 it’s all a lot more blurry, and so, for that matter, are the boundaries between fantasy and science fiction.
Please don’t ask me to define slipstream next.
