    Way back in the day I used to read mystery/detective stories, along with science fiction. I found Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine at a local used bookstore.

I go through phases where I read murder mysteries. This usually coincides with me frequenting the local library. I don't want to spend money on murder mysteries, but I'll read them if I can get them for free, like via the local library.

    I also read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy after seeing it on my local PBS station, along with various Star Trek short stories collections.

When I belatedly became a fan of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, I didn't want it to end with the final season, so I started reading novels set in that framework. I liked them a lot.
