I'm a proud father of two: a girl and boy. I'm also a science fiction fan. One thing I've noticed is that there isn't a ton of entertaining and relatable information on raising children for us sci-fi geek dads and dads-to-be. What's a guy to do?
A Sci-fi Geek's Guide to Raising Children is my attempt at addressing that (black) hole. It will be a series with personal advice on being a father but in science fiction terms. So let's take the ship out of orbit and go where most men have already gone before.
