The best Scifi & Fantasy storytelling – 2022 edition

2022 has been an AMAZING year for scifi & fantasy storytelling.

But mid-way through the year looked like a disaster. Streaming television has delivered both the best and the worst of scifi and fantasy this year.

The struggle to dominate streaming tv saw literally BILLIONS of $$$$ spent on scifi shows. But while much of that money was wasted on disasters like Fake Tolkien, it was smaller shows that crept in and stole our hearts and minds.

My review of the year lists my top 22 SFF stories…of 2022…and also my 7 worst, and the themes driving our storytelling at this moment in time.

And a MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of you on this journey, it’s a great time to be a scifi fan, and I’m honored so many of you are listening to the Science Fiction podcast and participating in this community. Thank you.
