I still like the old stuff!
I've been reading SF since grade school. I love the old masters like Heinlein, Norton, Asimov, Wells, Clarke. I must admit that the little that I have read of the new stuff is mostly incomprehensible to me. (sigh!) Time has passed me by, I guess.
How many of you out there are SF fans?
I love Asimov books (as you can probably tell by my nickname). Also the Dune books - I've just started reading those again.
Greetings fellow fans of sci-fi!
I too love R.Heinlein & Asimov. My favorites of R.H. are "Stranger in a Strange Land," and "Farmer in the Sky." I've been trying to locate a copy of "Orphans of the Sky" but I guess it's out of print.
I don't believe time has passed you by Frenchy, much of the new stuff just flat out lacks imagination. As Yogi would say: "DEJA VU all over again."
Caliban, yes, that sounds vaguely familiar (it's been a long time since I've read SF) Who was that character? One of Asimov's robot characters?
Okay, so how many of you saw "Mission to Mars" and what did you think about it? Honest.
I thought it was more on the line of the old style SF. I loved it.
Hey that's cool! I used to read much SF before becoming a JW and than had no time anymore for it because of ... you know Matthew 6:33 "putting kingdom first". But now i started again and the the first book was the one of Orwell 1984 - Big Brother is watching you. Also the other mentioned are well known. Does someone also read Stanislaw Lem? That's my favorite writer.
Caliban ?! ... haven't heard from him in quite a while !
