How interesting!
Gacked from my brother, who really is a science fiction writer.


I am:
James Tiptree, Jr. (Alice B. Sheldon)
In the 1970s she was perhaps the most memorable, and one of the most popular, short story writers. Her real life was as fantastic as her fiction.


Which science fiction writer are you?




There are so few women in s.f. and I got one, and one who used a male name, at that.

Cool. I read his short story "The Emigrant" years ago and it really made an impression on me.

That's cool! I got the same writer. I'll have to look into her work... I might find it interesting! :)

IMO (adoring opinion) I got the coolest writer. I am (tada!) Ursula LeGuin.

Usually, I'm not who I want to be, mostly because I refuse to manipulate the answers. But this time -- who could be better? Someone brilliant as a writer and a person, a visionary, feminist, and... anthropologist. My role model.

*off to paste hypertext on my lj and see if it works this time.*

LeGuin is certainly wonderful! Is she an anthropologist? I know her parents were famous anthropologists (I was very impressed with Ishi as a kid) but didn't realize she was as well.
