I don't do much with science fiction writers, but I do like HG Wells, and War of the Worlds.
I only read non fiction and mostly technical subjects. I do more with movies than books for fiction.
Unfortunately to me SCI FI movies don't seem to spark my interest.
TV shows that are popular like the Star Trek ones are not much more than contemporary themes with new technology backgrounds.
I did like the orig Battle Star Gallactica, but only because I like the cyclons. This was messed up with the newer versions where the Cylons were in human form.
Star Wars, the first one was OK because it was new, but any that followed it were imo, terrible.
Sure human nature will always be part of us in the future, but it shouldn't necessarily be for Aliens.
