Booking Through Thursday

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?

Yes, I read both SF and fantasy. Because I like them. Most of my favorite writers are SF/F writers (Lois McMaster Bujold, Neil Gaiman, Steven Brust, Anne Logston…) I like visiting places that aren’t real and in a way are, perhaps, more exciting than mere mundanity. Places where people live differently and have different values.

I don’t know yet if I’m going to do anything out of the ordinary. I don’t really know much about my favorite writers and frankly, I don’t need to. All I’m interested in is the writing.
