Yep! All kinds of, mainly Hard SF and Cyberpunk (though I started growing
out of the latter but Neal Stephenson STILL rules! As does William Gibson
(READ Pattern Reconition!!)). I also watch Star Trek and pretty much every
SF movie that makes it into the cinemas/TV.


PS: Hanna, I hope you keep counting. I want numbers! ;)
