Bizarre Landscapes in Science Fiction #SciFiSunday « Adafruit Industries – Makers, hackers, artists, designers and engineers!

World constructing is nice. We like world constructing. Coherent science fiction futures extrapolated from the bleeding fringe of in the present day are wonderful. Likewise we love wildly unique approaches to magic techniques and the stunning methods they could have an effect on the event of a fantasy world. However what about science fiction landscapes? Take into consideration the  The Shimmer from Jeff VanderMeer’s Annihilation, or the Visitation Zones in Arkady and Boris Strugatsky’s Roadside Picnic. There are much more unusual landscapes on the market. Right here’s extra from Indicators from the Edge:

Each of those landscapes are related, to the purpose the place what occurs on Qita, occurs on Earth. At one level within the novel, Earth’s land begins to show to mud, after which slime, after which a flood sweeps the entire inhabitants up right into a central location—the Skyward Inn. However not solely is the land itself turning to sludge, so are the individuals.
