Romance Novels... In Space?

Granted, I don't know much, but I didn't know science fiction/romance novels were popular. Okay, I didn't really know they existed. (Maybe I'm living under a rock.)

Who is the market here? I'm not saying women are incapable of enjoying science fiction, but does the type of women who enjoy reading soft porn also enjoy stories set in space?

Find out here.

A couple of these covers look like your average, unromantic SF story. Which would totally suck if, say, you purchased one and got an unexpected handful of raunch. Wait a minute... that might not suck at all!

Fallout 3 got me thinking differently about video games. I used to feel guilty whenever I played one, but this game broke me of that prejudice. I just bought Gears of War 2 and enjoy it almost as well as Fallout 3.


Science fiction isn't dead by any means, but it seems more accepted in today's video games than anywhere else. Too bad I don't have any friends to play with.
