Science fiction is very nearly dead

This might be news to some people, but science fiction, one of the major literary forms of the XX century, is dead. I say this a former, rabid fan of hard SF. SF really has nowhere left to go. Why? Because the future is going to get very, very, very weird and there’s not really a lot we can do about it. I mean the future is going to get incomprehensibily weird, weird beyond the human ken, and this is hard to write stories about.
