Again, I would go back to “Dune”, and say to those profs who might not call this literature to look at how the characters live, the examination of politics, what the book says about our reliance on technology and expendible resources, etc. The domains of Science Fiction and Fantasy literature are recognizable to many people, but it is the messages and social commentary behind these icons that has captivated readers, and more recently critics, in the past two centuries.
