Shouldn't whatever technology is used in sci-fi (or magic used in fantasy) merely be tools to help tell whatever story the author is trying to tell? In most sci-fi or fantasy novels (at least the good ones), the novel is about something other than the science or magic that exists in the world. Instead, whatever magic or science is in the world merely helps create the backdrop for the story.we're studying 1984 right now at school, and personally I wouldn't classify it as a sci-fi. I know it has all the new, high tech futuristic concepts but that is i guess, just to help Orwell get is point across - the warning of a totalitarian society. the technology was just a tool that was used by the Party and 'Big Brother'.
