Science Fiction or Fantasy?

I have never been a reader of science fiction. It just never caught my attention even though my father was a comic book artist that drew LOTS of science fiction. I don't know why I never tried it, I just didn't.

As far as fantasy goes, I would have to say the closest I ever came was "The Wizard of Oz", "Alice In Wonderland" and "Stargirl". Do those even count? I did love those books but that is about the extent of my fantasy reading.However, I do believe that "The Shroud of the Thwacker" would fall into this catagory.

I guess I am just more of a dramatic or historical fiction reader. Even as a child I would seek out things like the "Little House" books and the Kate Seredy books. Now, I still read those sorts of books -- I have never read a chicklit book.

I am wondering if I should expand my horizons?
