41.  Literary Genre - Science Fiction
(April 2002)
The literary genre of science fiction, which started in the 20th century, is a vast and confusing one. While it is impossible to cover every area of interest in science fiction, this short introductory primer attempts to illuminate various important aspects of this incredibly immense and complex literature, and perhaps enable a more appreciative, if critical, view when approaching this genre. This primer begins by introducing readers to the definition of science fiction, as well as the history behind the creation and spread of the genre. It describes the various themes and plot types that characterise science fiction literature, and provides various examples of monographs or films for each theme. It highlights the close relationship that exists between printed science fiction and science fiction in other forms of media will also be looked at. In addition, it also expounds upon the complex relationship between science and science fiction. Finally, it provides some sources for readers who wish to research into this topic in greater detail.

This primer provides strategies for implementing change and also lists obstacles and challenges faced by organisations in implementing change. It concludes with a look at the types of reward and incentive schemes used to motivate people to accept change.
