|mark211||Some say the origins of SFF lay not in legends so much, but in social and political satire - certainly Thomas Moore's Utopia (1516), Cyrano de Bergerac's Comical History of the States and Empires of the Moon (1651) and, of course. Swift's Gulliver's Travels (1726/1735) all fit into this category.||2017-04-23 03:26:11|
|mark211||As we are arguably living through the Era of Poe's Law right now (which Wikipedia describes is a Law "that states without a clear indicator of the author's intent, it is impossible to create a parody of extreme views so obviously exaggerated that it cannot be mistaken by some readers or viewers as a sincere expression of the parodied views"), what are the best SFF satires out there? What are your favourites? What - as far as you know - has not yet been satirised, but which you think is absolutely deserving of such? Could you write it? Could one of us? Let us know below. ||2017-04-23 03:29:13|

|Ironspider||I don't think I've read any broad SFF satire, unless the 'Iron Dream' by Norman Spinrad counts, but would the likes of 'Starship Troopers' not fall under such a category, even if only partially? 'Catch 22' is probably the most obvious satire I've read, but I'm not so sure about SFF - parodies yes. Perhaps there are plenty out there and, maybe, I'm just not reading them correctly!||2017-04-25 12:57:07|
|GordonRowlinson||The only satire I can think of is the Mel Brooks movie Spaceballs. It was funny and ripped into the Star Wars movies. ||2017-04-26 03:06:34|
We shamelessly accept handouts!
Give generously to the United Wa - uh, we mean Quantum Muse. It keeps Mike off the streets from scaring small children and the Web Goddess from spray painting Town Hall - again.
