It's late, I'm tired .. and I'm not Vonnegut.

I am:
Kurt Vonnegut
For years, this unique creator of absurd and haunting tales denied that he had anything to do with science fiction.


Which science fiction writer are you?



Oh, HOW I WISH. These tests only succeed in reminding me how I'm so NOT whomever they tell me I am. Then again, it does make me go all smuggy when I get someone I admire greatly.

  1. Apparently I am William Ford Gibson: (born March 17, 1948) is an American-Canadian writer who has been called the "noir prophet" of the cyberpunk subgenre of science fiction.[16] Gibson coined the term "cyberspace" in his short story "Burning Chrome" and later popularized the concept in his debut novel, Neuromancer (1984). In envisaging cyberspace, Gibson created an iconography for the information age before the ubiquity of the Internet in the 1990s.[17] He is also credited with predicting the rise of reality television and with establishing the conceptual foundations for the rapid growth of virtual environments such as video games and the Web.
    And he's part-Canadian, eh?
    Sorry, I tried to post the result but the result just wasn't happenin' man.
    Kurt Vonnegut? Huh. Why are you SO much cooler than me? (Oh yes, I remember, because you're one degree further north. How's Santa doing, anyway?

  2. As you have probably already guessed.... I am Ursula LeGuin ....ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGH!!

    I have actually read her, and like her(well until I read her to the kids a few years ago and found all the religious references a little tedious).

  3. Cathy, it's all about the (L)attitude.

    Man, Ursula LeGuin is pretty cool - I have a nice translation of the Tao Te Ching by her... you might find it tedious though! heheh

    One of the most prolific writers in history, on any imaginable subject. Cared little for art but created lasting and memorable tales.

  5. Aw, Asimov is just a stick in the mud - writing IS an art, eh?
