Intro to the SF Stuff

Posted 04-29-2009 at 12:45 PM by chexmix

I hope it isn't too OT to post this kind of thing here.

As was the case, I am sure, with many ITfolken, I grew up on science fiction, fantasy and [insert genre here]. After I toddled and twiddled off to a too-long stint in college(s), I stopped reading the stuff very much, though I would occasionally dip back in ...
