#1 reason. book stores have the worse selection of scifi. i never would read a book back in the day, not till amazon.com with they're kindle device is when i started to read. i went from reading no books to 200 in a year. #2 category's, the first 50 books i read i i didn't like, those books was like star trek. i hate star trek. its only till i found the category of HARD SCIENCE that i finally started to find stuff i like. #3 here in the usa people are dumb down so badly. most people cant even figure out how a rice steamer works. weight sensitive spring loaded trigger. its so simple but if people cant figure that out, hard science probably would give them a pounding headache.

If you want to read a great science fiction story then I want to tell you about this little gem of a tale I discovered by Jack Vance. Less than 200 pages it has everything you'd want in a fully fledged story... find out what it is!

Last night I was chatting to an old friend - despite neither having read Big Planet or Showboat World for years, we were laughing over some of the "episodes". I was telling him how I once mailesd Jack saying how many of his wonderful ideas I had shamelessly nicked for short RPG incidents.

+StarShip Sofa Great soliloquy, I heartily agree with you. Science Fiction is treated like diseases, and even when the public immerses themselves in blockbusters like Mad Max, you would think it was a crime if you mention the fact that it's Sci-Fi/Fantasy.

You just got to read this: An Astronaut's Guide To Life On Earth - by Chris Hadfield. What a great book. And I get out and about along my local coastline.
