Right, this could get controversial here, so I'm going to make it clear I don't want to offend fantasy writers. Or Sci-Fi for that matter. Are they really any different? In Fantasy if you replace Monster with Alien, curse with infection, magic with technology, ship with Space Ship, realm with planet/dimension you get sci-fi do you not? It works the other way too. Take Doctor Who. For people who don't know it (You really should!) its about an alien who travels around Time and Space fighting Aliens and creatures. In a bigger on the inside (Dimensionally Transversal) blue box. And he has a Sonic Screwdriver which can do anything by using sound waves. If they called the Doctor a god in a magic box who travels realms to fight monsters with a magic wand, they'd call it fantasy, would they not? So is my theory, Sci-Fi and Fantasy being the same thing sound? Anyone got anything different to say?
