10 things that happen when you go on a sci-fi reading spree

  1. You fart, and you smell methane.
  2. You feel disappointed that your father ain't Darth Vader.
  3. Your fashion sense has now become rather minimalist. Or with lots of sleek leather. Or white. Or spandex. And you wear dark sunglasses, even in the theater.
  4. You know that you're not "the one." Well, at least not in this reality. But perhaps in another parallel universe? 
  5. You imagine having clones of yourself. The clones do all the dirty work (e.g., boring office stuff, boring family get-togethers, boring dinners with friends), while the real you is on the beach, working your tan. 
  6. A ride on the bus feels a total pain. You know that teleportation is way, way cooler.
  7. All your T-shirts have sci-fi references, which some people don't get.
  8. Red Bull is your water. Energy bars are your food.
  9. Asimov, Bradbury, and Clarke (the ABC of sci-fi) are your gods.
  10. You trust no one.

I love sci-fi and your list was right on the mark. Have you read any of Neil Gaiman? I've read" Neverwhere and Stardust and am currently reading American Gods.

Hello, Beth! Yes, I've read a few works by Gaiman. I love his Sandman graphic novels. And I've read American Gods, Anansi Boys, Neverwhere, and The Graveyard Book.
