I'm pretty catholic about what constitutes science fiction.
The science fiction method is dissection and reconstruction.
The head of Fermilab was reading Astonishing Stories when he was ten.
It's clear that science and science fiction have overlapping populations.

That's the method: restructure the world we live in in some way, then see what happens.

I'm doing a book, 'Chasing Science,' about the pleasures of science as a spectator sport.
People ask me how I do research for my science fiction. The answer is, I never do any research.
In terms of stories I would buy for a science fiction magazine, if they take place in the future, that might do it.
