Three dates for any science fiction!

An interesting thought from this reivew at Bookslut:

… any science fiction novel has three dates: the date it was written, the date it is set, and the date it is about.

Take a look — there is a bit of anthropology that follows these sentences in terms of the depictions of war in science fictions and how they are affected by the times in which they are written in!
