So what's the difference between Fantasy and Science Fiction Anyway?

It’s not the laser swords, silmarils, farcasters, AI, long ears, kaiju, red shirts, arrows to the knee, wizards that came from the moon or the melange.

It’s as complex and as simple as this:

Fantasy is about how things end, Sci-Fi is about how things begin.

If you want to create stories in either of these genres you need to think about how you are going to characterise Change.
