To an extent - I love reading Heinlein for instance, and occasionally watch shows like Stargate. My dad's a major Sci-Fi freak, so I've had a lot of it drilled into me.

I like Asimov, Heinlein, and playing sci-fi role-playing games.

Sci Fi

I really enjoy Sci Fi, but I wouldn't exactly call myself a 'buff'.
I love, for instance, Ursula le Guin, Brian Aldiss, Ray Bradbury, John Wyndham - also many Sci Fi films as long as they aren't *too* violent!

A Science Fiction class, huh? Is that some kind of creative writing, or is it merely appreciation of the genre?

In college I had a Popular Fiction class that covered most of the major genres, including detective, sci-fi, and fantasy. Others (like westerns) had to be excluded for time but were replaced with movies.

I've tried writing my own science fiction but it's geared toward "interactive" fiction in RPGs. Mainly it's scenes or a list of what a character would say in the right circumstance. Whether the scene occurs depends on what the player characters do, so about 75% of what I write never "happens" in the story. My other problem is I focus too much on technology and not enough on personality.

I guess I like science fiction...although what I really enjoy is fantasy. For authors I like Stephen Lawhead, Mercedes Lackey, Maggie Furey, Melanie Rawn, Jennifer Roberson etc.

I like science fiction, especially movies. I haven't read many books recently. I want to read the entire Dune series sometime. I read the first 2, but it was several years ago and I'd have to reread them.

Sci Fi

Blinkin'cat, I'd say don't bother with the rest of Dune
After the first 2 books, it all became completely ridiculous.
That's just my opinion, though - no doubt other people will tell you differently
