I know what you mean pourya jan. I'm an avid reader of science, but not science-fiction. The problem with being a student of science is that sci-fi becomes a means to analytically discredit lol. I have a soft-spot for media that alludes to scientific phenomena and interpretation, rather than absolute discourse. This is one of the reasons I was able to endure Lost, where as Star Trek and those sorts are full of scientific anomalies that build a wedge between me and the story lol.

The fiction I've enjoyed the most is either of suspense or dark-comedy. Prior to "Women" the last fiction I actually completed was the Millennium trilogy from your fellow Swede Stieg Larsson, which I did enjoy.

don't get me wrong though, I like sci-fi! as long as the conditions are clear, in lost I was put under impression that it was not sci-fi! that it was all natural! but in Event or Fringe for instance we know that this is the condition and logic of this world. You adjust to it. however I like to see and hear sci-fi! not read it so I can imagine it! I love visual effects, that for me makes the sci-fi and fantasy genre! and reading about all wonders isnt the same as seeing for me.
