We all know there's a definite line dividing sci-fi and fantasy. Something to do with plausibility, I don't know... Isaac Asimov says it best in 'Magic.' Either way I ran into a discussion at work with a middle aged Argentinian over whether good fiction can strive to be in both spheres. This got brought up at work because i was trying to explain a universe, in which a number of my short stories and my current novel endeavor, takes place in. He proceeds to tell me I can't be both Tolkien and Asimov at the same time. I went on to ask him if he's ever seen Star Wars. He retorted with the fact that there was nothing Sci-Fi about that aurthorian excalibur bullshit; backing up his point by spouted out some klingon-spanish insult. Needless to say the conversation spiraled from that point on... I thought this would be an good place to send this tangent of literary grayness to for further discussion. And so, can one be both a Tolkien and Asimov in the same piece? A Tolimov?
