New Poll: Do you think SF/F will have a good year in 2011?

6 Comments

The new year is here and it seems like a good idea to have a poll about what you all think the year will be like for the genres we love.  The question is in the title and poll can be found on the left.  Comments, of course, are always welcome!

  1. A few important works are coming out in 2011, such as Book 2 of the Kingkiller Chronicles and Book 5 of a Song of Ice and Fire. The only one I'm excited about at this point is Embassytown by Mieville. I don't think SF/F will have a year like 2010.

  2. Hells yes, SF/F will have a GREAT year in 2011! I think we'll get massive cross-pollination by the SOFI series coming out – look what True Blood and (ergh) the Meyer movies have done to Paranormal romance.

    HBO and other American TV series are doing an ever-increasingly-great job of popularising SF/F, as people realise it's significantly more entertaining than things constrained to the 'normal' world.

    Plus, geeks get older and hit their second (and third!) generations. I have a copy of Dune on my desk that my grandfather gave me. People are growing up now writing, having had a full generation of precedent-setting authors blazing trails for them.

    I am slavering in anticipation of 2011s goodies.

  3. Well, someone is enthusiastic :P.

    I hope SF TV will be good this year. I really need a strong replacement for BSG…so far, there have been close calls, but nothing that made me obsessed.

  4. I said yes, I wasn't even thinking in TV terms, but A Game of Thrones looks like creating some waves, but bookswise it really depends on if a few long awaited big releases actually do come out.
