Also take a look at Professor Barker's RPG "Empire of the Petal Throne"
which embraces the science/magic concept. He has written one or two
novels that link with the game.

Additionally, Brian Aldiss wrote the "Heliconia" trilogy which also
links the two genres. Excellent stories.

Who says fantasy and Sci-Fi don't mix? I will remind you of an old
axiom: Any technology, sufficiently advanced becomes
indistinguishable from magic. And: One man's magic is another man's
science. (I"m working on a couple of novels based on this concept.)
