Hard sf

‘Hard’ science fiction had been the dominant form of sf during the Golden Age but it is only with the emergence of ‘soft’ science fiction – that concerning the social sciences – particularly during the New Wave or with the impact of  Feminist sf – that it became identifyable as a distinct subgenre in itself.

Writers associated with Hard sf include Larry Niven
