I'm not a capital-F science fiction "Fan", I just read a lot of the stuff, mostly straight-up SF and urban fantasy. And watch a lot of the movies. And a lot of TV shows.
OK, I'm a geek. But I'm not a "Fan".
I tend to prefer "soft" science fiction over "hard". I also have a fondness for author's first novels and one-hit-wonders; something about the freshness and enthusiasm they bring to the genre.
