In the unreal:Is Fantasy my reality?…

Really short burst of curiosity now, as I just wonder about much of the modern science fiction and fantasy or horror books, films or television series that we see and how much do they reflect our own worlds and should they at all?

Do I need so much in a story to be able to ‘connect’ to for me to enjoy it or relate to it in the best way?

Does that actually matter at all with genre stories, fantastical, highly unrealistic which many people easily mock? Often the characters seem to see the world in a different way, they can know things most do not, be aware of danger others ignore…maybe they are too often difficult cliches which hold back genre fiction and films or that could be just what keeps them what they are…

I think I will come back to this, possibly extend it in some form. For now, back to the dail grind, barcodes, adverts, calories, news mania  and pop culture around me…
