Oh snap! You're watching Rich TVX News Network! The source of raw, breaking news.

Science fiction has changed and risks losing its core and identity. If you love this genre – I hope you watch the video in which I explain the problem and propose some solutions.

Here are the short story collections I can recommend:

– The Science Fiction Hall of Fame, Vol. 1: 1929-1964: https://www.amazon.com/Science-Fiction-Hall-Fame-Vol/dp/0765305372
– The Collected Stories of Arthur C. Clarke: https://www.amazon.com/Collected-Stories-Arthur-C-Clarke/dp/0312878214 (although you might want to skip some of the stories in the “Tales from the White Hart” category)
– Any Philip K. Dick short story collection.

P.S. it may seem from the intro that I am picking on Brandon Sanderson, I did not mean it that way. I am totally picking on “Lady Astronaut”, however.
