    Hello!!

    My name is Lotte, as you probably already guessed. I just registered and thought I would best introduce myself first. I'm not yet that familiar with the Sci-Fi genre, but I do absolutely love it. For a couple of months now I have been staring at supernova pictures and drooling at the game Galaxy on Fire, which is still not on PC damn it. Since a couple of years I discovered I loved dystopian stories, so for my book list (school) I read 1984, Brave New World, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and of course A Clockwork Orange. I also started to love Doctor Who and from that the journey began :), to where I am now, watching Firefly, which is amazing.

    The reason why I am here is simple. I just want to explore the world of sci-fi and I hope to find some good suggestions for movies, tv series, books and other stuff related to this amazing genre. And maybe after a while I will be prood to call myself a proper sci-fi geek :p

    Lott (Lotte?), welcome! (y)

    You're off to a great start so far! If you poke around the forums you'll come across a lot of recommendations for books, movies, & TV to check out. I suspect that as your read/watch move you'll branch out into all different types of the sci-fi genre.

    Oh yeah by the way, I read George Orwell's 1984 too, and it was very very good. If you like books like his I suggest you read Animal Farm too. It's amazing how he nailed communism and socialism too a tee. The novels were both well ahead of their time. Hope you are enjoying it here on the site!
