One of my favorite sci-fi authors (Sharon Lee) has declared June 23rd Fantasy and Science Fiction Writers Day.
As she puts it:
So! In my Official Capacity as a writer of science fiction and fantasy, I hereby proclaim June 23 Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Day! A day of celebration and wonder! A day for all of us readers of science fiction and fantasy to reach out and say thank you to our favorite writers. A day, perhaps, to blog about our favorite sf/f writers. A day to reflect upon how written science fiction and fantasy has changed your life.
So … what might you do on the 23rd to celebrate? Do you even read fantasy/sci-fi? Why? Why not?
I don’t read much Sci-fi. It’s not that I don’t like it; it’s just that I don’t know what to read. The books I remember reading are The hollow Skull (loved it) and The Trechyon Web by Christopher Pike. And I’ve read Uglies too. I used to read a lot of Robin Cook in college. Does that come under Sci-fi? And Congo too. Its one of my favorite book and I love the movie too. This is as far as my Sci-fi reading goes. I might have read others but I can’t recall any at the moment.
I read Fantasy but not as much as I would like to. As always I can’t recall any names. And I’ve never heard of Sharon Lee. I have Un Lun Dun which is an Urban Fantasy and I’ve been wanting to read it for a long time. Lately I’ve noticed there are a lot of Fantasy books coming out in YA.
What will I do on 23rd? I don’t know. I might read or review a fantasy/ Sci-fi. What say?
Do you read Fantasy/ Sci-Fi? What will you do on 23rd?
I’m at work and I literally feel like jumping but I can’t, so I’m doing the next best thing. Writing it on my blog 🙂
I’ve read the first 2 books Mine till Midnight and Seduce me at Sunrise and loved them. Although I wanted it to be on Leo, I’m happy with Poppy too.
Aaaaannnnnndddd I think its high time I start working on my blogroll…
