Hey everybody! I've been lurking, on-and-off, for quite awhile and thought I'd finally introduce myself. I've been a huge Science Fiction fan for as long as I can remember. Started with Star Trek(TOS). Loved Space 1999. Aside from Star Trek, it's probably my all-time favorite SF TV show. I'm also a big fan of Stargate & Sanctuary. I love the SF film classics and read a lot of SF books/short stories. My fav SF film would be either "Forbidden Planet" or "The Day The Earth Stood Still." Hard to make a definite choice between the two. The short story is my favorite written form of SF. Some of my fav authors are: Clifford D. Simak, Harlan Ellison, L. Sprague De Camp, and R.A. Laferty (just to name a few). My favorite SF novel would probably be "The World Inside" by Robert Silverberg. I'm looking forward to some great Science Fiction discussions and maybe making some new Sci-Fi friends. Engage!
