Thanks to the required reading in year 8 English for introducing me to science-fiction through Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World”. It was the first novel which made me think outside the lacking literature which was around me at the time and made me delve deeper into the genre which I found fascinating.
Thanks also to JG for introducing me to sci-fantasy in my early 20’s through Raymond E. Feist and Janny Wurts “Empire Trilogy”. This imaginative genre has definitely inspired my creativity and is one I am drawn to.
These two avenues of discovering new genres changed the way I read and write and for that I am thankful.
