Are they all fantasy? Or do such things have a grounding in 'real' science, pointing the way to what will happen in the future? The answer, of course, is yes.

And for nearly a hundred. years other writers of science fiction have been stretching their imaginations .... and ours - .to encompass ever more bizarre possibilities, from alternate universes. to nvaders from outer space, some plausible, some downright weird.
