Why do you read this stuff?

Why do you read science fiction, fantasy, speculative fiction, or whatever the hell you want to call it?
no, seriously. Why do you read this stuff? why do you pick up a fantasy or a hard SF or a new weird or a steampunk over contemporary fiction? How come you’re reading something completely weird and off the wall while your co-workers and neighbors are reading Jonathan Franzen or Stieg Larssen or Kathryn Stockett?
What made you choose what if or once upon a time over contemporary bestsellers?
Inquiring minds want to know.
And by inquiring minds, I mean me. i’m just curious like that.
