Several well known physicists have published novels. Hawking and Sagan both have...I believe Feynman had a couple of novels.
Before a rumor gets started and gets out of hand, no, Feynman did not write any novels.

Sagan did, yes. The novel, Contact.

Hawking has, apparently, co-authored some children's books with his daughter, Lucy Hawking, and illustrator, Gary Parsons.

Feynman: no, no novels.

My principal interest is science (physics in particular). Beyond this I love reading books. When I have free time I read a lot of books: fantasy, drama, novels...
I love watching Tv- series too.
Finally I love reading comics (manga in particular).
Sometimes, when I find right people, I play board games.
 
Old VWs, welding, treehouses, video games, electronics, and learning. I'll often pick a subject and read a few basic books about it - chemistry was a fairly recent one.
