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?
Well no offense meant to the genre and those who enjoy it, but it’s not my usual genre. There are a few small exceptions in the classic works that fall into that genre. But as for anything modern, I am not a Sci-Fi reader. So on the 23rd I will not be celebrating it. However, perhaps I will make it a book celebration day for myself and hold a little read a thon.
