Authors pick top Sci-Fi cities
Sometimes it is easy to think of place that has a science fiction connection, these can be visions from films or from the descriptions that we read in books. However, no matter how we personally feel about a location or place, there is always a difference in opinion as to the best places in science fiction.
This view has prompted the Shared Worlds site to ask that burning question to some of the most popular science fiction writers of today, the question is:
“What’s your pick for the top real-life fantasy or science fiction city?”
The answers are somewhat different to what we may have expected:
Elizabeth Hand – REYKAVIK, ICELAND
Nalo Hopkinson – KINGSTON, JAMAICA
Ursula K. LeGuin – VENICE, ITALY
China Miéville – LONDON, ENGLAND
Michael Moorcock – MARRAKESH, MOROCCO
It is strange that no US city has been chosen, considering that, US cities tend to feature in many sci-fi films.
