Space opera? Space punks? haha
The Chrysalids by John Wyndham was published in 1955. The power of gods in the hands of children. That's my bit for now.
Space opera is a fairly well defined genre. Likewise, the grungy application of the sci-fi/speculative trope has generated super cool genres like cyber, steam and space punk. I mean, Neuromancer is one of my fave books ever.
bullocks to this captcha garbage.
Sorry, didn't mean to tread on your space opera.
I love LRondHubbordz crappy space opera, that guy wrote some hilarious stuff. Gotta give it to the evil creep. But don't you like STAR WARS? It is a quintessential space opera. And like, so much of it slips into comic books and so much stuff. Hell, even Mobile Suit: Gundam and lots of Japanese sci-fi has major elements of space opera.
So, in short, don't be a hater, Fidel. I bet Castro is all about space opera. In fact, I think I'll dial up the TroBro (we have nicknames for each other) and tell him about some riceroni jabroni who doesn't enjoy the joys of a well made space opera.

CAPTCHA is the love child of HP Lovecraft and Edward Bulwer-Lytton, orphaned and then adopted by Orson Scott Card. It is the future. Love it. Love it.
