    A Question From a Sf Lover.

    I adore science fiction. I grew up in a family of SF lovers. One of the reasons is because it allows people to explore issues close to home without being too confronting. Some poeple I meet say they don't like science fiction. But I then I ask them what movies they watch. A...

    Why I Love Science Fiction

    Where to start?  There are many reasons why I love science fiction. The biggest reason has to be that it is one place where women are regularly played as being strong characters and I like seeing positive role models. I also life the ability to lose yourself in another...

    Life Outside The Atmosphere (Discontinued)

    Clearly "Life Outside the Atmosphere" has gotten no attention. Maybe I'll try again when I'm more "known." For now it will be discontinued.

    Writing Sci-fi

    ...is one of the hardest things I've attempted to do. It's really enjoyable watching sci-fi and playing it and reading it. But I have found it is the most difficult genre to work with, at least for me! It's difficult trying to describe things in a 'cool' and futuristic sort of...

    Superman and the Sci-fi Genre

    Superman has always been a problematic character. How do you make an all-powerful, morally perfect and emotionally healthy character interesting? I was always a much bigger fan of the psychologically tortured superheros: Batman and Spider-Man both dealing with their PTSD...

    Life Outside The Atmosphere (Introduction)

    In the year 1476 there was a..."rising" you could call it. Ordinary men and women went into a fit of rage after the president, Steven Louis, was assassinated. It started with them going on a strike, it soon escalated a year later. Nothing was being produced in factories and soon...

    Great Alone, But Better to Share

    I love Sci Fi movies.  From Star Wars to Riddick.  I tend to stay away from the cheesy stuff, but I love sci fi books and movies.  Fortunatly my fiance' loves it too.  We get excited when new stuff comes out and get to watch it together.

    Love of Sci-fi and Isaac Asimov

    My first sci-fi book, at least the first one that really hit a cord, was Isasc Asimov's Currents of Space.  After that I was hooked. Years later, after reading Pre-lude to Foundation I wrote Asimov and told him how much his stories meant to me.  Much to my shock, he...

    Sci-fi Is a Powerfull Tool

    It allows us to view the problems on our society without all of our societal baggage weighing us down. We viewed the problems of segregation and racism in star trek, what could hapen to us as we explore the universe on Stargate and that the troubled loner with a missfit, criminal...

    I Mean, I Really Love Sci-fi!!

    My very favorite author is Sir Arthur C. Clarke (RIP 2008)... his books inspired me to the greatness mankind can achieve.  He was a philosopher and sociologist and real scientist all wrapped up in one awesome person.  Other than his books, I love sci-fi movies like...

    I do absolutely love science fiction.

    It's not all equal of course and I keep looking for the good stuff. I really enjoy early sci-fi tv - things like: Space 1999, The Martian Chronicles, The Invaders. Star Trek - goes without saying. Original Star Wars. And of course Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, in every...

    Escapism, the Future and Sci-fi

    My mother got me into science fiction practically from birth.  The original Trek was my first love and my last was Firefly.  Sci-fi resonates with me for many reasons: I can escape the crappiness of reality; gaze into the future and gain hope; stop thinking about the...

    Stranger In A Strange Land

    I think that this is one of the best books ever written. Robert Heinlein writes a story that is fun and interesting to read. At the same time, he writes this story in a way that challenges you to examine what you believe and value in almost every area of life. This book is a...
