The only other space I had in the house for a bookshelf was the kitchen, so that’s where my non-fiction books and pop tab collection ended up. More information on my website.
Science fiction has inspired many block-buster movies. Star Wars, Matrix and Terminator are some of the movies that are based on science fiction. In fact, many scientific discoveries were first imagined in science fiction literature only. Robots were first featured in children’s fiction books during the start of the twentieth century. They eventually became a reality during the later part of the twentieth century.
Unlike other types of fictions, the science fiction books feature technological innovations that have not become a reality. Most of the present day fiction books discuss about time-machines, inter-stellar travel and flying cars. These are as innovative a concept as Robots were during the start of the twentieth century. Who knows, these science fiction machines may eventually become a part of our daily life in not too far future.
Robert Jordan’s “Popular Wheel of Time,” “Lord of the Rings” and “Star Trek” are among the all time favourite science fiction books. Joe R. Lansdale’s “Flaming London” is among the best selling fiction books of the present time. The book presents us with a postmodern alternate earth in its Victorian period. The main carryover character of the book is Ned the Seal. A mere seal in body, Ned has been experimented on by Dr. Momo and is now a highly intelligent being. Ned has thumbs grafted into his flippers so that he may communicate with humanity with his omnipresent slate. In fact, most of the book is narrated by Ned himself.
Leading book publishers come up with new science fiction books every now and then. In fact there is a multi-billion industry that is based on science fiction books. These days, DVD and CD versions of these books are also available at retailers across the world. These books and their DVD/CD versions are also available at leading online book stores of the UK like Bookworm and Amazon UK at highly attractive bargain prices.

I have a book report to do, and I’m an eighth grader, and I have no idea what to read. I can read anything, it just has to be fiction.
I have to doa book report and I get to choose the book. I love to read, so length won’t matter. It just has to be interesting, and fiction.
