So. What kind of science fiction lover are you? Are you an avid old-schooler, content to climb the core branches of the sci-fi family tree: Hard SF, Soft SF, SF/Fantasy? Or do you like clambering along the newer limbs: Apocalyptic, Bio Punk, Superhero, Steampunk, Space Opera?
No shame in being one or the other, or a combo of several fan bases. I'm a bit of a mix, myself. I grew up in the era of Asimov and Clarke. But I also adore the deep, mythological themes that are mined via Star Trek and Star Wars or the dystopia of The Handmaid's Tale, The Hunger Games, Divergent or The Walking Dead.
