      Scholes' Structural Fabulation. In each book at least one character reveals the distortions and dangers to which an exclusively rational, scientific mentality falls prey. If we are to achieve the integrated literature which Samuelson imagines, it must involve more than a borrowing of metaphors from science for the mainstream novel, more.   The book equivalent of a house plan is your structure. Any writing you do without having a complete structure in place–a detailed outline down to the sub-chapter level–is likely to be a waste of time. Your book is really its structure. The structure determines the order of what will be said, in order to get your message across.

      Structural Fabulation is a short book. As Scholes says, it is "an essay, not a treatise, a series of lectures on a single topic, not an exhaustive investigation of that topic.". Science fiction is a field of literature that has great interest and great controversy among its writers and critics. This book examines the roots, history, development, current status, and future directions of the field through articles contributed by well-respected science fiction writers, teachers, and critics. The articles 'speculate' on what is science fiction, is science fiction .

If the Lewis essay is a representative sample of the quality of the new book, Science Fiction should enable us to ignore Structural Fabulation as a mere false start, a blotted prelude to a truly significant study.

The narrative structure of a novel encompasses more than the plot line: the beginning (the exposition, inciting incident, and complication), the middle (rising action and climax) and the end (resolution and denouement).

Structure is architecture. Robert Scholes’s suggestion in Structural Fabulation—the initials, you will notice, are S and F—is that we should fling ourselves in the same direction. “I am asserting,” he asserts, “that the most appropriate kind of fiction that can be written in the present and the immediate future is fiction that takes place in future time.”.
