Fantasy and Sci-Fi

btt button

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?


Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

  13. The 23rd sounds good to me. I love science fiction, and collect signed science fiction books.

  14. I am left we the odd notion that I must be missing something. My husband, father, and close friends are all avid fantasy/sci-fi readers. Yet other than an occasional book (that is more exception than rule) I don’t enjoy the genre.

    Hmmm…

  15. Here’s my answer. It appears that Sci-fi/Fantasy is one of my fave genres after all!
