Although perhaps not quite as near to my heart as the 1970s (when I explored science fiction as an enthusiastic if not very discerning teen) or the 1980s (when I first encountered science fiction as an adult), the 1990s were nevertheless an interesting period in science fiction, one whose examples deserve better than to be consigned to miscellaneous.”

Welcome to The End of History, which takes its title from Francis Fukuyamas visionary 1992 text, The End of History and the Last Man. Just as Fukuyama’s book celebrated the complete, eternal triumph of liberal democracy over other forms of government, so too will The End of History celebrate the science fiction of the 1990s.
