Science = only if I understand the principles

Sci/Fi = only as an entertainment subject,

I like science, mostly in articles I see online. I read a lot of novels, a number of which are science fiction. I'll never be able to get into a fantasy novel.

Sci-fi and fantasy are the best editorial venues available. I absolutely love sci-fi in particular, because it puts some limitations on the flights of fancy logic. Fantasy and the sub-genres are often mental masturbati*n.

As close as I ever got to fantasy was about a lady who could change into a big grey wolf. It was OK, and well written. So-called "soft" science fiction is OK, too. For example, a bit of telepathy can be kind of fun, but not when it comes to a book where, somehow or other, a red-haired woman happens to end up on a certain planet where they learn they become witches with very strong powers, and where they all end up in a group sex, telephatically. That is so far out of bounds I don't know what to say. Unfortunately I had to read it to know what was going to happen.
