Even before we had a name for it, science fantasy -- where fantasy tropes are handled in a more SF setting -- has been a big piece of the genre. From Edgar Rice Burroughs, Leigh Brackett, and Jack Vance, through Star Wars, and on to many more recent works, science fantasy forms a large part of what we read and what we watch.  What makes a work science fantasy? Why do writers chose to write science fantasy? And what are good examples of recent works?
