Open Road Media recently had some of their most well-known authors talk about their love for science fiction and fantasy — and what the difference between the two is. The video includes Ellen Datlow, Alan Dean Foster, Barbara Hambly, John Jakes and Patricia C. Wrede. Not to mention you can watch Barbara Hambly read tarot cards!

Leave it to the brilliant editor Ellen Datlow to sum up the distinction between the two genres best.

"Science fiction is an extrapolation of what's going on in the world…Fantasy is more about things that cannot be."
