About Me
Self-diagnosed book fanatic since childhood. As a kid I read almost exclusively non-fiction, in particular a lot of nature books as I wanted to be a zoologist when I grew up. The discovery of the original Star Wars trilogy at age 11 was the beginning of my big passion, which gradually broadened my interest to other SF & fantasy films, then films in general, and finally to stories in all their forms and media including movies, TV-shows, mythology, novels, comic books and video games.
