The Spec Fic Flow Charge

N. sent me a link to this graphic about science fiction movements today and it's utterly brilliant:



The full thing is huge, and details the historical formation of the speculative fiction genre, drawing from authors such as Mark Twain, T.H. White, and films like Star Wars and others. As always, there are quibbles (where is Fritz Leiber in swords and sorcery?), but objects like this are great for what is and is not included, and to ignore that is to ignore part of the beauty that Ward Shelley created.
