I’m a science fiction loving geek and, while I love all sorts of science fiction, I’ve a particular fondness for apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic material. I don’t know why that is, although I’m sure there must be some deep psychological explanation for it. However, whatever the reason, it’s a plain and simple fact: I like stories in which the human race has been brought to its knees and all but wiped out.
I’ve also always loved horror, and I can well remember staying up late as a child to watch the old double bills of classic horror movies – and as a young teenager I saw quite a few of the so-called video nasties that were subsequently banned. Um. Yes. As a young teenager. Good parenting there, then, obviously. Here’s the thing, though: I’ve turned out to be a well balanced adult who doesn’t go around killing people. However, I’m digressing slightly.
