Probably the event that set me on my nerdy, science-fiction filled life more than any other was the fact that my dad got so excite about watching Star Wars with me when I was very young, like 5 or 6. It quickly became a tradition for me: whenever I was home sick or home for a snow day, it was a “Star Wars Marathon Day”. I can thank the original Star Wars trilogy for getting me hooked on science fiction and epics. But I think I can thank Madeleine L’Engle for my continued plummet in to the world of science fiction and fantasy. Her young adult novels are perfect for an open-minded 10 year old, and I thoroughly enjoyed them. Like Asminov for many others, I found L’Engle was one of the first authors that sparked my love of all things science fiction and fantasy, so I thought it only appropriate to dedicate today’s suggestion page to the wonderful writer.
