* Averted in ''Discworld/TheScienceOfDiscworld'' series, where the chapters alternate between "story" and "science", and illuminate each other. In the story chapters, the wizards of Unseen University study a "Roundworld" they created that lacks magic and impossibly runs without [[TheoryOfNarrativeCausality narrative causality]] - just scientific laws. The science chapters explain what's happening in the story - how scientists work, the formation of Earth, and so forth, serious explanations of the real science that the wizards have encountered. The writers mention the FictionScience trope in the introduction, and say that they are not doing it. A more accurate name for the series would be "The Science of Roundworld" (i.e., ''our'' world), but [[MarketBasedTitle you know how it is...]]

Where Science Fiction is the writing of stories derived from some form of extrapolation from the laws and theory of science, there is a subgenre of books which take well-established settings and worlds and take a documentarian, analytical view of how that setting fits into, illustrates, or contrasts with the "real world".
