Scifi, is my drug of choice.
Among the American public that reads anything let alone fiction, there are distinct groups. People read pulps & crime dramas, histories & biographies, horror & romance, fantasy & science fiction. I read, mainly science fiction (scifi) which only slightly differs from Fantasy.
Fantasy is not set in the present or near future, the far future with advances beyond our kin will seem like magic to us as our present would seem to the distant past. the Fantasy/Scifi allow me some of the pleasure of visiting worlds I will never know.
