Shakespeare in Recent SFF #SciFiSunday « Adafruit Industries – Makers, hackers, artists, designers and engineers!


Super enjoyable record from Alana Joli Abbot up on Tor.com that exhibits Shakespeare’s affect continues to be very a lot alive, even inside the SciFi style.

Prince of Cats seems notably superior!

We do surprise, nonetheless, if there are any sci-fi authors on the market borrowing or reinterpreting Shakespeare’s lesser identified works. Don’t get me unsuitable, I’m all for reimaginings of Hamlet, The Tempest, Romeo & Juliet, and Midsummer Night’s Dream and so forth. But wouldn’t it’s cool to see Titus Andronicus or Troilus and Cressida get the SciFi therapy as nicely? In some methods these titles (being darker, being extra subversive, being a bit extra of a problem) are ripe for the selecting.

But they do, from time to time, turn out to be boring if they’re too acquainted. Which is why Shakespeare retellings, particularly within the SFF realm, “give delight, and harm not.” Shakespeare’s works delved into the realms of fantasy lengthy earlier than the trendy age of fantasy novels, so it’s no shock that speculative writers take inspiration from his works. Here’s a roundup of ten latest and forthcoming bard-inspired tales to take tedium to activity.
