By Mark Wilson:
All my life I've enjoyed science fiction and fantasy, not just as escapism, but as a way of exploring the boundaries and possibilities of human existence. From the first time I read The Lord of the Rings or sat down to watch Doctor Who, I knew that the strange new worlds I was being invited into exist, within us. My goal for the Sci-Fi / Fantasy site is to open up those possibilities for everyone, ardent fans and curious newcomers alike.
