Hi Ralph,I was involved with ACS two symposia and one at NSTA on Science and Science Fiction. I also taught some science fiction in my non-major classes. See my web page http://www.chymist.com/science%20and%20science%20fiction.htmlI used mainly short stories, rather than novels, to keep the reading from becoming burdensome. See the first topic Science fiction materials I use in my classroom. Due to copyright restrictions, I could not post these stories on my website.I hope this is helpful.David_________________________________________________________________________

I suspect that there are people who are better versed in this literature than I and I'd appreciate examples that come quickly to mind.
I'd also be interested in examples of specific books you may have had as children (age 12 and under) that got you interested in science outside of school.
Thanks for any information on these questions.
