When we think of science fiction and fantasy, we think of alternate realities and futuristic cities—avatars and AI and Coruscant. But these genres look to what happened in the past as much as what might lie ahead. Go back to the future with three leading sci-fi and fantasy authors and explore what writers and readers can glean by going backward in time to move forward.
