Mundane science fiction (genre)

Mundane science fiction is a subgenre of science fiction, typically hard science fiction, which is characterized by its setting on Earth or within the solar system, and a lack of interstellar travel, intergalactic travel or human contact with extraterrestrials.[1]
The Mundane science fiction movement, inspired by an idea of Julian Todd, was founded in 2004 during the Clarion workshop by novelist Geoff Ryman among others.[2][3] The beliefs of the movement were later codified as the Mundane Manifesto. [4]
Ryman has contrasted mundane science fiction with regular science fiction through the desire of teenagers to leave their parents' homes.[5] Ryman sees too much of regular science fiction being based on an "adolescent desire to run away from our world." However, Ryman notes that humans are not truly considered grown-up until they "create a new home of their own," which is what mundane science fiction aims to do.[5]
