    I was thinking about re reading Bram Stocker’s Dracula and then that reminded me that I’ve read Frankenstein and am now currently thinking of reading more classic horror books or modern for that matter. anyone have any suggestions?

    No, I was more into the classic sci-fi when I was an avid reader, like Wells and Verne. :D

    Like Dianetics? Tell me more of this sci-if what specifically lead you into one of those books? Aliens? Technology? Because I’m not so much into that genere.

    I just liked reading about how people imagined the future might be. When I was a kid, NASA was doing some really exciting things, and we as a society seemed to look towards the future much more than we do now. The possibility of intelligent life elsewhere was fascinating to me, as is artificial intelligence. :)

    My bread and butter growing up was ST:TNG and all of the others. Humans in space interacting with aliens man, so cool. And Mr. Data was the besssssssssssst(AI)

    Yes, I loved me some Data. I never understood his desire to be human though...but it makes the general audience more comfortable that a superior being would desire to be like them I guess. :)

    He wanted to be the real deal. I guess I understood it as he wished he wasn't an "automaton" and was a real person, he wanted a soul when he already had one. And ****, they killed Data. :thumbdown:

    Birds of Prey and Warlock are good starting points. Birds of Prey is about Privateers and Warlock is the nickname given to the old wise man Taita in ancient Egypt. Awesome reads. But he's got some books about people living in Africa in the 1800s too, and some modern settings as well.
