Fantasy and science fiction are two genres that are products of imagination. Both present alternate worlds governed by their own laws and values, but it is the plausibility of events in each world that sets the two apart. In fantasy, events happen by magic or inexplicable means. In science fiction, events could happen based on advanced technological knowledge. This column gives brief descriptions of nineteen books that fall into these categories, and also provides a list of related titles recommended for further reading.
