fuzzi: The "dragons" are genetically engineered from native fauna, though it is not explained in this particular volume. Many think this is a fantasy, but it is SciFi.

Explications
sarahemmm: Bujold herself calls this space opera, but it is science fiction in that it is about how people deal with a situation that is different from our present. In this case, a world which reverted to the 19th century meeting FTL travel.

Explications
Aquila: I think of them as more science fiction than fantasy, especially if they fork from one small change.
rosalita: I don't think of alternative history books like Farthing to be science fiction, but that might just be me.
anglemark: Alternate history has long been classified by scholars as science fiction.
ejmam: Alternate history is SF, especially if it isn't alternate because magic

Explications
lorax : Not science fiction. Mainstream fiction with some SF trappings.
sarahemmm: My opinion is that all SF is 'mainstream with SF trappings'. It is interesting on the confusion caused by unexpected TT.
sturlington: I don't consider this book to be science fiction.

Explications
paradoxosalpha: As an SF author, Leigh Brackett is known for her planetary romances, which are indeed very fine. But this novel, perhaps her most lauded book-length work, involves a more serious and credible look at the future of our society.
