Far from becoming boring, there is a definite shift in literary fiction toward plots and themes and ideas that one would only have seen in genre SF until very recently.

Ransom who finds himself in a futuristic dystopian Earth society, filled with superior alien beings and uncontrolled scientific experiments. Dick, 2 highly regarded SF writers who wrote much of their work in the 50's and 60's. More information about this in my bio-biblio, in my CV and below.

Can such content trigger a research focus for a child? It should be noted that the 1966 film Fantastic Voyage was novelized by Isaac Asimov to promote the film which was itself adapted from a story co-written by Jerome Bixby. 2001: A Space Odyssey, (1968), comes to mind as a "serious" SF film though it seems a stand alone piece that nevertheless had a great deal of influence on subsequent SF films because of it's soundtrack and special effects and changed how mainstream filmgoers viewed the genre; however it's almost documentary-like adult take on SF was firmly in the mainstream and not on the dreaming, literary side of SF.

The basics of the monomyth should feel familiar to you. Even before he was tragically killed in the War of 1812, he had become a figure of mythic proportions. The first edition, entitled The Checklist of Fantastic Fiction, published in 1948, was one of the earliest attempts at a comprehensive listing of SF. Perhaps when one has no effects money one has to concentrate more on cultivating that sense of wonder; for whatever reasons, The Core is a failure at SF entertainment, perhaps relying too much on the audience simply being in awe of what is taking place without taking the trouble to convey that awe, as did for example, First Men In the Moon when showing landscapes accompanied with appropriate music; one must make the characters and through them the audience viewers in a travelogue of the fantastic.

Steve McQueen makes his film debut in 1958's surprise hit, down the line, The Blob, a step up as far as production values go, almost accidentally as it were. It's some kind of miraculous conjunction.
