My favorite part was Eva Caye's observation about one reason SFR can be so appealing:
...if you have some devastating whatsit, dystopian future or what have you, most revolve around catastrophes or really huge occurrences, wars and such. And those mind-bending, world-shaking things MAKE people want to connect to each other.Exactly! In various ways, science and technology have a direct impact on relationships and can also influence the very formation of many relationships. SFR focuses on that point in time when science intersects with romantic love.
