The fiction published from 1926 to 1962 is often called modern science fiction, and almost all the novels published as science fiction during this period appeared first as magazine serials or were revised from magazine stories.
Science fiction also began to be published in the new mass-market paperback form and in hardcover, first from small presses devoted to science fiction and then by major publishers.

physical science is the harmony and multilayered fabric of science that form connections with theology: Because God is the Creator and Author of both theological and physical science, there are a harmony and areas of shared concerns that are discernible to the sensitive observer.
While theological science involves beauty, it is not as apparent that this element is found in the physical sciences.
