June 17

In honor of Father's Day, I credit my love of science fiction to my Dad.  Both my parents were big readers.  Daddy was a fan of Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, Ben Bova...  There was always a sci-fi book laying on the coffee table and at some point, I started picking them up.  Due to his illness, Daddy almost never left the house, but when Star Wars came out in 1977, he and I traveled 50 miles to see it in the movie theater.  He loved it.
