Would you rather live 500 years in the past, or 500 years in the future? past or future? Doesn't even matter the years. Which would you chose? For me, the future, absolutely without question. But when i asked two friends this question, both said past, and I was rather shocked. I wasn't excepting that answer. One is an avid fantasy reader. If you chose future, do you prefer to read sci-fi over other forms of literature? If you chose past, do you prefer fantasy? If not, why?
