Welcome to PhilipCharles.com!
Hello and welcome to my website! I am an author and ghostwriter whose primary interest is in science fiction, whether literary or film. I love the ideas and possibilities posed by the genre and how they relate to our modern world — a society poised on a knife edge, building incredible systems and devices that improve our lives, even as these same inventions threaten to undermine everything that brought us to this point.
The Importance of Science Fiction
For many people, Science Fiction (or SF) is simply the literary genre that deals with the future possibilities posed by scientific understanding — an entertaining distraction from the ho-hum themes and settings of contemporary fiction. I’m going to argue it’s much more serious than that, of course.
