They were happy enough when we studied the subgenre of dystopian fiction because they too did not consider themselves to be science fiction readers.

As you can see, my science fiction tastes aren’t very varied … yet.
Recommend me some of your favourite or most interesting science fiction titles.Happy reading 🙂
