I enjoyed this interesting article from the BBC about the international diversification of sci-fi:

Nothing ever stays the same and it is very good for the genre to bring in new ideas and new voices. On the other hand we are seeing an increasingly aggressive China and Russia exerting themselves militarily in several regions – so while the rapid changes in those countries is great for SF, they are also triggers for great inter-cultural friction…
