Since my original post about how I noticed a new trend in SF I named SciFi Strange, others have chimed in with their views on this. Among the comments:
- James W. Harris mentions SciFi Strange in his post Has the Universe Gotten Too Big for Science Fiction?
- Aliette de Bodard says SciFi Strange "does describe pretty well the SF I write, as well as the SF I enjoy; and I can think of a couple other writers who are dealing with it, like Sara Genge."
- John DeNardo at SF Signal likes the term.
- Gareth L. Powell bounces the idea around.
- Eugie Foster likes the term and wants to see how often she can say SciFi Strange.
- James Van Pelt is intrigued.
- World in the Satin Bag comments on New Weird SF, the term which started me pondering about SciFi Strange.
- Alana Joli Abbott loves how this supports her "theory that the boundaries of spec fic are so fluid you can't always tell where you are in the spectrum."
I could go on. Obviously there is something to this whole SciFi Strange idea. It'll be interesting to see where all this goes.
