I actually read a real Science Fiction book! Usually I stray far far away because of my perspective that I can not relate to flying unicorns, monsters, and other fantastical creatures. I similarly find it more challenging to develop collections of Science Fiction materials, so I often illicit help from colleagues who are more well versed in the subject.
While I was sifting through a bunch of Sci-Fi titles about a month ago, I read the summary of Orson Scott Card’s newest book, The Lost Gate, and was intrigued. The next week I got an Advanced Copy of the book, though it had been released that week, and you know what? I actually liked it! It was very low on fantastical creatures, took place in our current modern world, and I felt able to relate to it. There was some teleportation, but I was okay with that because I knew what I was getting into.
So there world, I have faced challenge and succeeded! Will I now read lots and lots of Sci-Fi books? Probably not. But at least I’ve read one! Face your challenges!
