Am I a fan of Sci-Fi? You bet your little cotton socks I am... I grew up on Heinlein and Asimov and Andre Norton (actually I'm 1/2 way through re-reading a secondhand copy of "Star Man's Son")... I probably read at least once science fiction book a week (I think I average a book a day but I bounce back and forth between science and technology and historical fiction and [more recently] Agatha Christie and ... pretty much anything that catches my eye really). Do you have any suggestions? I'll trade you suggestion for suggestion...

I was considering a re-read to Kim Stanley Robison's 'Mars Trilogy' and after reading your article I will surely start today. I wonder if I will like them as much as I did. By the way - the readers already know that you're a Terry Pratchett fan. Are you also a fan of scifi?

Wouldn't it be wonderful to have some faster-than-light spacecraft and be able to zip around the Galaxy (mayhap even other Galaxies) looking at all of the strange and wondrous sights that are out there...

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
