  • From E. E. “Doc” Smith’s Lensman, to George Lucas Star Wars, the politics and process of Empire have been a major subject of science fiction’s galaxy-spanning fictions.

    The idiom of the Galactic Empire allows science fiction writers to ask (and answer) questions that are shorn of contemporary political ideologies and allegiances. This simple narrative slight of hand allows readers and writers to see questions and answers from new and different perspectives.

    Here then is a diverse collection of stories that asks the questions that science fiction asks best. Empire: How? Why? And to what effect?
