A Failure of Imagination?
#2
What do you define as newer scifi? A lot of very good science fiction of the past 5 years has focused more on social and personal stories. I've seen the term "social SF" thrown around with regards to highly claimed works like the Ancillary Justice series, Terra Ingocnita, Semiosis etc. Rather than authors having a failure of imagination maybe it's just that the particular science fiction subgenres you like aren't prominent anymore? Transhumanist hard science fiction has been in a steady decline from the mid-00s peak period, possibly because all the interesting ideas were already tapped out or maybe just because all trends pass.

What kind of stories are you interested in reading?
OA Wish list:
  1. DNI
  2. Internal medical system
  3. A dormbot, because domestic chores suck!
