Xia Tianyi

Abstract—In the history of Western literature, science fiction, as an essential branch of it, has been widely loved by the masses, and a crowd of outstanding science fiction novelists has been produced. With a large number of science fiction books adapted into films, the novels are also familiar to more audiences. Science fiction has been sprouting since 1902 in China, with the efforts of the pioneers and the relay of the latecomers, there have been many excellent works. But compared with the situation of western science fiction, it is not supportive of the healthy growth of science fiction in our country, and the public has not accepted science fiction novels. This paper will focus on the development history and current situation of science fiction in China, and explore the differences between the creative environment of Chinese and western science fiction and the prospect of Chinese science fiction, to seek a better future for Chinese science fiction.
