Science fiction and fantasy in Serbia has a long and varied history.


As far back as the end of the 18th century, science fiction elements can be found in Serbian literature, but its modern period foundation is considered to commence with "Posle milijon godina" (After Million of Years), written by Dragutin Ilić in 1889, which is also considered the first science fiction theatrical play in the history of the world literature.[1][2] Lazar Komarčić's novel "Jedna ugašena zvezda" (An Extinct Star) followed, with publication in 1902.

Today, Zoran Živković (writer), winner of the World Fantasy Award, is considered one of the best-known Serbian science fiction authors, and perhaps the best known.
