    I Grew Up With Sci Fi! A List of Films I Enjoyed

    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.

    Of Books and Black and White Television

    My grandparents of my mother's side of the family actually had a library filled with science fiction, fantasy (like Tarzan) and UFO books.  They were like a ordinary part of life for me from my very earliest memories, and so I was exposed to rockships, spacesuits and the...

    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.

    Does anyone remember the VG (Victor Gollancz?

    ) SF books. They had yellow covers. Brilliant writers. In my teens I read two or three a week.
