Nuts, Bolts & Laughs

There are many works that helped me along the road to authorhood, but the first of these was Harry Harrison's BILL THE GALACTIC HERO. I had been in the Army and was an avid science-fiction reader, and BILL satirizes both. I laughed until I hurt, and when I was finished reading Harry's book, I said to myself, "If you can make a living writing this kind of stuff, that's what I want to do." As it turned out, I didn't write that kind of stuff; I wrote my kind of stuff. Turned out to be a good move in any event.

What works moved you into writing? Into Science-fiction? Fantasy?
