There was a period of time when I read current Science Fiction but it gradully became depressing. I will occasionally read a short story out of a magazine (Asimov's) but most of my reading is classic. I have lately discovered that I really enjoy old mysteries also so between Rex Stout, Earl Derr Biggers, Ellery Queen and the classic Science Fiction authors that I've not read all of yet, I probably will spend the rest of my life catching up. (And I plan to live to be 206). There's a lot of old books out there.
