I'm a very big SciFi fan and have been since my Dad brought home the Star Wars trilogy on VHS when I was six. Within a year I discovered Star Trek: TNG, which aired reruns everyday after school. At 11, by chance, I happened upon a Games Workshop store in a mall and have been hooked on the stories every since. I do play 40K a bit, but mostly I just like the stories and the artwork and painting the models.

Audio books has really opened up the opportunities to consume SciFi material. It's become so easy to listen while I drive or do yard work. As a result, I've become enamored with Frank Herbert's Dune, enjoyed Harry Potter a good deal, and can at least say I finished Tolkien's works (sorry, it's just okay).

I want to give an honorable mention to After On by Rob Reid, which he claims is not scifi, but "speculative fiction". His follow-up podcast is also great, if you like real science.

A second honorable mention is Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. If you were raised in a hellfire-laden, Left Behind style Christian eschatology, then you will laugh and laugh and laugh when you read this one.
