Slice of Sci Fi has been having a long-running and rather interesting conversation on their voicemail show about what got them into sci-fi television or movies. This got me curious about you, Gentle Reader (many things do).
I’d love to know, what got you into reading fantasy? Did you start out reading fantasy at a young age? Did you get into reading via a cartoon or movie or video game? Or did you come at it via steampunk or some aesthetic movement? Were you born into fandom, did you find fandom, or did you have fandom thrust upon you? Or do you not consider yourself part of the SF/F culture at all?
I read Tolkein way back when, but I consider my gateway drug to sci-fi and fantasy actually to be Tamora Pierce’s Song of the Lioness series. I didn’t find fandom until relatively late in life, I believe I was about 18.
