I don't like to name favorites.

Start doing that, and that's when truly horrible, soul-crushing badfic of it starts landing on your console. So I'm not going to.

That said, it's no secret that I'm a bit of a Tolkien buff. Got its hooks in me during my formative years and all that, same as Trek. There's no point in trying to put one above the other. They're both cornerstones of their genres, both revolutionary in their own way, both equally important.

For the record, I'm more of a sci-fi fan overall, but it doesn't show as much because authors like Asimov, Heinlein, Huxley, etc. are less comprehensible to the average idiot, ergo, knock on wood, there's less fanfic of their works. Let alone crossovers.

    We all know you're a ravenous book lover, but that you're also into Star Trek . What novel or book series is your favorite? And do you like it or Trek better?

          I thought about picking it as a favorite of Nume's, actually, but see above. I would love to have a long, confusing debate with you. The problem there is that I do not, in fact, have perfect recall,... more

            ((I got my hands on a copy of I, Robot back when I was ten and it's still my favorite of his works to this day. Especially the first story, it still makes me cry a little.))

              ((I'm sorry, but it's just not for me. This seems to be a common problem I have with really, really old works of literature: I get bored of them. Lovecraft's about the only one I like. I've tried... more

              And admitting things like that are why I sometimes feel like I need to hand in my geek card. Call myself a sci-fi fan, will I, when I haven't even read I, Robot ? Pshaw! ~Neshomeh
