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. 231 People

    Star Trek

    My dad is a star trek fan and he's got all the movies and shows and a lot of the novels and I started watching and reading them and now I'm a big fan of science fiction.

    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.

    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...

    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.
