New Blog: Science in My Fiction

The webzine Crossed Genres has just launched a new blog, “Science in My Fiction” which they describe as follows:

“The purpose of the Science in My Fiction blog is to get science fiction and fantasy writers and fans thinking ahead of science again. Playful bloggers will take a look at recent scientific developments and extrapolate potential futures from them. SiMF will update Mondays and Fridays (for now; possibly more in the future).

This is a fight for survival of the fiction. It’s time to seize culture and do science to it!”

The first post, discussing animal intelligence and sentience,  has already stimulated quite a fascinating discussion, ranging over dolphin vs human intelligence, how we define sentience or intelligence, and where or whether we start drawing lines between animals and humans (just in the 15 or so comments I read!).

Looks like a fun place for worldbuilders to hang out in search of stimulating new ideas!
