The research traces the history and development of the science fiction genre in Welsh. The aim is to explore portrayals of space, the future and monsters in our literature, and do so through a creative methodology, by going on a metaphorical adventure to the extremities of the universe. 

The project was inspired by my interest in futuristic and science fiction films, my eagerness to find examples that contradict the realist tradition in our Welsh language literature, as well as a desire to widen the horizons of Welsh language readers.
