En fait, on a même assisté à une riposte sur plusieurs fronts. Des jeunes gens branchés, dignes héritiers de Blade Runner, ont lancé la mode du « cyberpunk » pour tenter d’appréhender la réalité, convulsive et médiatique, des lendemains quasi dystopiques qui semblent nous attendre. D’autres ont choisi la fuite. En faisant revivre des genres que l’on croyait obsolètes, comme le fantastique, le space opera ou l’heroic fantasy, ils ont tout misé sur l’évasion, au pire sous la forme naïve de contes de fées inspirés d’un Moyen Âge de pacotille, au mieux vers d’amples visions cosmiques.
