science fiction book cover

I read science fiction like crazy, and watched science fiction movies whenever I could. I could easily tell whether science fiction stories were accurate or not, but most of the time I just enjoyed the stories and let my imagination run wild. I often wished I lived 100 years in the future.

At first I started out with comic books - Superman, Batman - but then I bought my first paperback science fiction novel. It was hard to read because of the small print, but soon I had read all the Robert Heinlein, Ray Bradbury and Isaac Asimov books. I also enjoyed seeing the creepiest and scarriest movies I could find, but they would often give me bad nightmares until I got older. But mostly I liked science fiction, not fantacy or ghost stories. I really liked stories about distant planets, other universes, time travel, and alien civilizations.
