The future looks different to many of us now than it did just a few years ago. To what degree is the concept of an open, freely imagined future under attack in our own culture, from either the right of the left. To what degree have larger cultural currents affected the SF portrayal of the future? And how does SF imagine its own future, or is it, too, stuck in a cycle of recurrence, of hankering for a restoration of its own golden Age? What is the outlook for the future?

It's the end of the world.....and civilization as we know it has collapsed. We all have different scenarios to what happens after - what's looking interesting these day? Explore this archetype of sf.

I can see I have some reading to do. *g* Anybody know any interesting tidbits about Las Vegas that I don't?
