“The authentic SF experience is a perception of truth, reality in an unreal environment.” - David G. Hartwell

The “SF” that Hartwell describes here is science fiction, but that acronym might also stand for “speculative fiction,” a category that encompasses both

science fiction and fantasy. Stories about other planets, fantasy realms, and the future invariably reflect upon our own world: the “truth” and “reality” that Hartwell mentions. We will focus on the way that speculative genres empower stylistic experimentation, cultural commentary, and exploration of substantial issues.
