    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.

    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.

    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.
