What Sci Fi Writer Are You?

Head over to the Triumvirate (or scroll down) to see who I ended up to be. Yeah, okay, cut it out. You can stop laughing now. Sheesh.

At least I didn't end up as the author of Morphodite, eh? (I wanted Le Guin or Stanislaw Lem or Arthur C. Clarke or Ray Bradbury or Vonnegut--you know, someone I've read--or at least Larry Niven, author of The Mote in God's Eye, which I admit I have not yet read.)

Take the quiz, courtsey of Pharyngula, and tell me all about it. Yeah, we'll see who's laughing now!

I'm Arthur C. Clark, which was cool because I always thought it was cool he moved to Sri Lanka and had his "existence" there.

I've been exploring moving to the Galapagos. Seriously. Or possibly a beach front in Ecuador.

The three rules are...

I don't know if one can live at the Galapagos, Kevin, unless you're part of a research team.

But living in Ecuador would rock. I have a sponsor child there in Quito. Sometimes I think after I get my MLIS (and my second bachelors which I’m thinking about) I’ll go somewhere like that and work.

I took the quiz, and came up as Isaac Asimov. I had hoped for Robert A. Heinlein (the One True God of Science Fiction), but no such luck. In truth, such hope was delusions of grandeur.
In my pantheon of science fiction greats, Heinlein and Poul Anderson tie for first. Asimov comes a close second, while Arthur C. Clarke is a distant third. None of Clarke's character's ever really grab my soul, not like those of the Big H and the two Big A's.
I am fond of quoting what I call Asimov's Axiom: "There is no belief, however foolish, which will not gather its faithful adherents who will defend it to the death."

Ruth Harrison? I don't think so. Who is she?

Ruth Harrison is a fictitious character on Garrison Keillor's "Prarie Home Companion."
