Science Fiction or Speculative History?

We brought together two Techers who branched into the realm of writing science fiction: New York Times–bestselling and Hugo Award–winning novelist David Brin (BS ’73), whose work spans more than three decades and includes The Postman, Sundiver, and Earth, and newcomer S.B. Divya (BS ’96), whose debut novella, Runtime, was just nominated for a Nebula Award. The two authors discuss the evolving nature of their genre, how Caltech shaped their writing, and how the imaginative worlds of science fiction can impact the real one in which we live.
