Llista d'obres de ficció especulativa

De Viquipèdia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Açò és una llista d'obres de ficció especulativa, l'argument de les quals està situat en un futur hipotètic, generalment de ciència-ficció i classificable com a utòpic, distòpic o postapocalíptic, entre més subgèneres; a més, sovint tracten temes comuns com l'exploració espacial, la intel·ligència artificial (IA), la parapsicologia, els superpoders o el viatge en el temps.

Les obres que mostren un futur ja passat en l'actualitat com, verbigràcia, 1984 apareixen en gris; les que encara són vigents de 2018 en avant, en blanc; no s'inclouen obres d'ucronia o del subgènere steampunk que narren un passat o un present divergent del real, com tampoc obres de fantasia sense un temps definit (space opera).
