BSC Review has a great roundtable discussion about science fiction that influenced people's childhoods, including contributions from authors Charles Stross, Ken Scholes and Ian R. MacLeod. (Stross' influences are pretty much what you'd expect, including Arthur C. Clarke — although he was apparently a fiend for E.E. "Doc" Smith.) And then Star Trek/Fifth Element actor Sonita Henry confesses her deep love for Labyrinth and Dark Crystal. Oh, and Ian MacLeod explains how he watched the very first Doctor Who episode and wrote a letter to the BBC telling them it should run forever. [BSC Review]
