August Poll Results

I suspect my small sample is not statistically significant, but it’s interesting nonetheless.

Space Opera was the most popular type of SF, with 20 % of the votes.

Cyberpunk and science fantasy tied second with 12% each.

The only category to receive no votes was TV / Movie tie-ins. Is that really true, or are people just unwilling to admit it? I read all the Dr Who books by the time I was 12, and a few of the early Star Trek books, up to about no.12 of the original series. The only Star Wars book I read was Alan Dean Foster’s Splinter of the Mind’s Eye, which pre-dated the other spin-offs by several years. Oh, and the Han Solo books. Those were the days…
