I participated in a panel that discussed politics in science fiction and fantasy. Which books (and TV shows and movies) do it well? Which don’t? And is it always necessary to have politics in SFF world building? What do you think? Have you ever read a SFF book that didn’t have any kind of politics? (I would say The K-Pro doesn’t, but it is set in contemporary England with only fantasy underpinnings, so . . . Does that count? Or would you argue the politics in that book are more about the mythology?) Lots to think about and discuss!
