One of my favorite sci-fi authors (Sharon Lee) has declared June 23rd Fantasy and Science Fiction Writers Day.
As she puts it:
So! In my Official Capacity as a writer of science fiction and fantasy, I hereby proclaim June 23 Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Day! A day of celebration and wonder! A day for all of us readers of science fiction and fantasy to reach out and say thank you to our favorite writers. A day, perhaps, to blog about our favorite sf/f writers. A day to reflect upon how written science fiction and fantasy has changed your life.
So … what might you do on the 23rd to celebrate? Do you even read fantasy/sci-fi? Why? Why not?
I read a ton of fantasy books. I just recently started Neil Gaiman's Sandman series and am really enjoying it. Some other new favorites are the Wicked Lovely series by Melissa Marr, the Southern Vampire series by Charlaine Harris, and the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead. I would love to celebrate the day by posting a fantasy book review or just talking about my favorite fantasy books.
How about you? (Want to play along? Go to Booking Through Thursday.)
Later today I will have my 100th post! It will be a giveaway, so come back and check it out!
