Am a bit late here. I wasn’t able to post this past Thursday because my graduation was scheduled that day xD
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?
I believe I will be out for most of the 23rd so I don’t think I’ll be celebrating, sadly. Plus, I’m immersed in Joven’s The Book of God and Physics to start a new sci-fi or fantasy novel (though I have a few sci-fi and fantasy novels on my TBR list). I’ll probably celebrate this day next month or so when I re-read The Lord of the Rings (something I do every year :)). I do read fantasy and sci-fi; you could say that my roots are in those two genres. I don’t know what to say regarding why I read them, really; the two genres have always appealed me since I was 8/9 years old. I don’t read it as often as before (let’s say, in high school) but I still enjoy reading fantasy from time to time as a break from general fiction and whatnot 🙂
