Science fiction has over years produced some of the greatest novels in the world since the time of Aldous Huxley’s Brave New York world and George Orwell’s 1984.A good number of these authors seems to reach a consensus that there is watertight evidence that science fiction merits have long been discussed in the critical circles as well.
