Your NHTI librarians have put together a display featuring classic and newer science fiction in the library lobby. Science fiction imagines other worlds and technologies which could exist. Science, rather than magic, drives the stories. Books in the display may be checked out with a valid ID for three weeks.
Check NoveList in the library’s EBSCO databases for articles and reading lists covering all aspects of the genre.
