Speculative Fiction
rating: 0+x

Basic Information

Science fiction, fantasy and everything in between. On television, usually destined for cult status or a very short run. See What If for categories of things that are speculated on. The term was originally a "backronym" for the initials SF. Some writers felt that science fiction, or sci-fi, now equated to flying saucers and rubber monsters, and wanted to distinguish themselves with a new genre label. The desire to create separate categories is even greater when folks apply the sci-fi label to horror stories that contain blatantly supernatural elements (such as various immortals) but few if any science-based elements whatsoever.
