I like this idea, that we haven’t really left behind our childhood passions and interests. We’ve just updated them and fitted them into our adult world.
“Loads of children read books about dinosaurs, underwater monsters, dragons, witches, aliens, and robots. Essentially, the people who read SF, fantasy and horror haven’t grown out of enjoying the strange and weird.”
