How did science fiction/fantasy become the most fascinating genre for you?
I was corrupted at an early age by the short stories of Ray Bradbury and Harlan Ellison. Both authors captured my imagination with the strange possibilities of the world. Then I saw Star Wars and started reading comic books and there was no hope for me.
I was about 8 years old when I first saw Star Wars and the rest as they say is history. I am also an artist and have been drawing Star Wars and Lord of the Rings art for a few years now. Also love the Harry Potter series of movies and books too. I feel Fantasy and Sci fi helps me to escape reality now and again, which sometimes is a must for me in this day and age!
When I was a kid in the early 1950s, we would listen to Dan Dare, Pilot of the Future, on Radio Luxembourg, and then re-tune the wireless to BBC, Home Service and listen to Jet Morgan, Journey into Space, I also got the Eagle every week for Dan Dare; well, and for the other stories and interesting bits.
I think it has to do with being limitless, ordinary stories are limited to Earth and the past and present, as soon as you bring in the future, and imagination, you can go forever.

Why do people insist on calling fantasy science fiction? ...Harry Potter and Twilight, for example, are fantasy, NOT science fiction.Heinlein and Asimov wrote science fiction. To see current authors, look up "Analog" magazine, for their stories and book reviews of real science...

Which is an easier genre to write in and get published: science-fiction or fantasy?Being a creative person, interested in writing a book sometime, I was just wondering what people's thoughts were on this subject. I know science-fiction and fantasy somewhat go together.
