Sci-fi genre losing its thunder?


Me and my family always spent quite a lot of our time with our noses stuck in a book. Our book collection contains quite a lot of sci-fi, mostly the older authors from all around the world (well, mostly the Central and Eastern European authors, now that I think of it). It just seems to all of us that the new sci-fi books lack any novel thoughts. Is it because there are no more themes to write about, or do the authors choose to write about what already proved to be successful?

    What constitutes "sci-fi" these days? I agree there is a shift, but is it getting broader or narrower?
