Does this describe you?

  • Steampunk, alternate history, hard and soft science fiction, speculative fiction… you’ve compared, contrasted and heatedly debated the merits of all categories, which authors best represent each, and started fist fights at cons over them.
  • Heinlein, Clarke, Herbert, Asimov, Bradbury… you know these names better than you remember your high school graduating class.
  • The odor of slight mildew, dust, age, pulp, and love that pervades the best of all bookstores is perfume to your nose… and starting to permeate your own home.
