I Love to Read Sci-fi and Fantasy

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 434 People

    My First Fantasy.

    The first fantasy series that really remember was the Narnia series. I remember that the richness of the words made the world and characters pop out at me and seem so real and life like. So much so that even if I wasn't reading them I could imagine them. It is one of the few...

    The Hunger: His hunger

    Me Too

    I love to read sci-fi when it's authors like Ursla Laguine or even modern writers like janet McNaughten. They are placed an entirely different but a good bit of it is actually plausible if you take away the hyperbole and look at the basics. LIke George Orwell's 1980 or McNaughten...

    Another World

    I read and enjoyed ender's game. I thought it was excellent. Still need to read the rest of the series. I've read too many fantasy books to count. I'm currently reading A game of thrones by George R.R. Martin and Stone of tears by Terry Goodkind.
