I Became a Science Fiction Fan At An Early Age

For everyone that has lived long enough to see what was once science fiction become science fact. 175 People

    Of Books and Black and White Television

    M Dad Told Me I, Robot Stories Before Bed

    He'd simplify them some what, but I knew the three laws of robotics before I knew how to read. I also got my preschool friends to play Star Trek. My first "grown-up" book was a Star Wars novel in third grade.

    Six, if you count Doctor Who.

    Then Star Trek, then books. So I'm part of the pre-Star Wars generation. I was sad when SF books got replaced by crappy Lord of the Rings knock-offs.

    Quite Early

    I was about six or seven. Before that I wasn't aware that SF existed, so you could say I became a fan at the earliest opportunity.
