Guest Post: Science Fiction vs. Fantasy by Irene Helenowski


Author Irene Helenowski stops by The London Diaries to talk about her novel “Order of the Dimensions”….So I was having lunch with a good friend of mine and we were discussing how to increase my book sales.  My work is science fiction and I consider myself a purist, i.e., no paranormal anything in my writing.  Not that I object to vampires, werewolves, and such. I must admit that I’m quite a fan of Being Human (the British version). But that’s not what my writing is about. I like to get into science and technology more than the magic. So you could imagine my disappointment when my friend suggested that perhaps I needed a vampire of werewolf or something to make it sexy. But I have a former KGB agent who, albeit evil, is pretty hot. Is that not sexy enough? Hmmm …. maybe too James Bond. But I like James Bond. And others do too! Truth is I’d like to believe that we can still make science itself exciting for the masses. Yes, witches and wizards are pretty cool, but wasn’t the first moon landing as well? Can you just imagine all the families gathered around the television in the 1960s watching that monumental event? My mom still remembers it as one of the first highlights that my family experienced after they immigrated here from Poland. Now, imagine the excitement that would ensure once we could break through a dimensional barrier and travel between parallel universes. There is still unfortunately a lot of mistrust that the public has towards science but we can help change that and we could still do more convince young men and women to entire fields in biology, chemistry, and physics as there is still much work pertaining to finding cures, saving the environment, and yes, perhaps implementing interdimensional travel. We could still. Dream about going twenty thousand leagues under the sea, strive to welcome change and challenges as HG Wells would want us to, and to boldly go where no man [or woman] has gone before. And I would be very pleased if my little book can help in peaking an interest in such endeavors in any way.
