Who is your favorite sci-fi or fantasy author?

At this point, for a living author, George RR Martin. I think we are watching him create his masterwork with A Song of Ice and Fire. I haven't watched the HBO shows, only read the books. For classic author, it would still be JRR Tolkien. Other favorites, alive and dead, include Jack Vance, Steven Brust, Fritz Leiber, Brent Weeks, Peter Brett, Vonda McIntyre, Greg Bear, C.S. Lewis, Peter S. Beagle, Blake Charlton . . .

Do you enjoy viewing sci-fi/fantasy television and films? If so, do you have a favorite?

I do like SF and fantasy films. My old favorites are the original Star Wars three, 'classic' Trek, Indiana Jones, Labyrinth, LadyHawke, Mirror Mask, and Superman. More recent: The Avengers, X-files, Dresden Files, the X-Men films, Men in Black, Spiderman. I'm a sucker for genre movies.

Do you attend in any local, regional or national sci-fi/fantasy conventions? If so which ones do you attend? What do you enjoy most about them?

I don't regularly attend any of them, although I've very much enjoyed the last Steamcon I went to. Mostly I enjoy meeting people who like the same genres I do, hearing about new books and movies and watching the costumes go by.
