Today, most speculative fiction in the DPRK revolves around the quest for adequate food. Frequently, manuscripts are rejected as "too fantastic."

Judging from the article, most DPRK SF was ideologically correct kid stuff. Like Mirror Universe Heinlein juveniles.

It's interesting that the original article stresses the Soviet (rather than Chinese) connections of 1950s North Korean culture. It is important to remember that the first Kim, Kim Il-Sung, spent time in the Soviet Union and even served in the Red Army there.

North Korea had a future, in the 50s.
