    So, How do you prefer your SciFi? Its ok to include how you take your Fantasy, Horror and other speculative fiction too.

    1. Books
    2. Comics/Graphic Novels
    3. Short Stories
    4. TV Shows
    5. Movies
    6. Plays/Skits
    7. Audio
    8. Internet Media
    9. Games
    10. Something else?

    Towards the end it got kinda hard to think of choices. What other ways can you get your fix?

    11. Imagination
    12. ???

    I included "Something else..." with my votes as number #11, Imagination, has kept me busy during many off hours such as plane flights, business meetings, etcetera.

    I love it all! (Well, that which I consider good, which is rare, but I'm open to all media forms.)

    Books, definitely (although some films are good).

    I like writing them too, although the pleasure is different.

    I have to say I prefer films and TV series, since I'm originally a film freak and not a book freak :P

    I love it all as well. Even the "Operas" (unless they get too preachy)(Deep Space 9 & Voyager are both guilty of this).

    #9 overly so!
    Some "open-minded" editor needed to tell them to ....


    1. "Give it a worm?"
    2. "Put a sock in it?"
    3. etc., etc., etc.

    Ah... now I understand "spaceopera" in regards to DS9 being used as an example.

    Sci-Fi in almost any form is good.


    I feel the same as Sugarpromises about Sci-Fi.

    Thanks a lot!

    Initially, Sanctuary was a 20 minute online show, and Riese was released as a 10 minute show on Youtube.
