Science Fiction/Fantasy

rdNumerous sci-fi and dream journalists are “non-religious” (or, all the more precisely, their “religion” is composing sci-fi and dream – in the entirely sociological feeling of what constitutes a critical inspiration or group for them). Numerous other SF/F creators have expressed an inclination for common methods of insight, for example, secularism, free-thought, and now and again humanism. A few scholars have a profoundly individualized religiosity or conviction framework which doesn’t fit into a conventional order (e.g. Philip K. Dick). English dialect sci-fi and dream creators who are disciples of customary religious beliefs as a rule have a place with a branch of Christianity (these incorporate Catholics, Anglicans, Latter-day Saints, Protestants, and so forth.) or are Jews.hyy

Religious followers from different religions (Islam, Hindu, Baha’i, Tenrikyo, Wiccan) are recorded here also. We have been not able distinguish any Sikh SF/F authors. Buddhist SF/F journalists are extremely uncommon. (In Signposts in a Strange Land, Walker Percy talks about why there are no Zen Buddhist authors.)

Writers have been recorded in the table underneath, assembled by religious connection, in light of their own announcements in distributed meetings and memoirs, data from the writer’s authentic site, or on the grounds that they have kept in touch with us to hyrequest that be recorded on the page, and indicated how and where they ought to be recorded. A writer’s religious connection is never “expected” or speculated in light of the religious association of the characters in the writer’s written work or in view of the topics and evident perspective in their composition.
