A bit of Sci Fi horror? From Harlan Ellison to Alastair Reynolds and George R. R. Martin, a list of books to give you chills…
Sci-fi horror is a well-known film genre, but terrifying sci-fi books often go unappreciated.

Star Trek’ is one of the only science fiction series that is optimistic about the future of humanity.
A failed TV show, “Star Trek” is fueled by something mightier than Nielsen ratings: Fandom.

I'll let the great Ray Bradbury speak today! A few of his most memorable quotes...

In the last 62 years, there have been 115 interactions recorded between humpback whales and killer whales, and in a great many cases the Humpbacks have gone to great lengths fending the Orcas off from attacking other species, like Gray whales and even seals. “The most logical biological explanation for the humpbacks’ vigilante-like behavior is that the whales receive some sort of benefit from interfering with orca hunts.” Of all the incidents the scientists investigated over the last five decades, killer whales targeted humpbacks just 11 percent of the time. The other 89 percent involved orcas hunting seals, sea lions, porpoises, and other marine mammals.
It’s possible humpbacks are rescuing seals, sunfish, and other species by mistake, but there’s a chance they have altruistic motivations.
