Big Surprise.

I am:
Robert A. Heinlein
Beginning with technological action stories and progressing to epics with religious overtones, this take-no-prisoners writer racked up some huge sales numbers.

I got Heinlein, so I took it again, and now I'm H.G. Wells.

I don't even know what that means. :)

Janiece Murphy said...

You didn't want to be Heinlein?

Michelle K said...

I'm William Gibson!

Yay Cyberpunk (or anything punk)

Cindi in CO said...

I'm fine with Heinlein, but after most of our answers matched on Jim's questionaire, I thought I should be DIFFERENT, damnit!

Heh.

Janiece Murphy said...

Yeah rugged individualism. That's us!

Hee!

Jeri said...

Huh. I'm Hal Clement, who I have never actually read. Interesting.

Nathan said...

I'm David Brin. I've never even heard of the guy.

Nathan said...

I like monkeys

Jim Wright said...

I'm Arthur C. Clarke - Woo friggin' hoo!

Brin, that's a major compliment, Nathan, as is Clement, Jeri. Both are serious world builders, through Brin is more of a story teller. Clement can be a little dry, but I love his stuff.

Cindi, I'll bet you changed your answer on the "America First" question didn't you?

Arthur C. Clarke
Well known for nonfiction science writing and for early promotion of the effort toward space travel, his fiction was often grand and visionary.

Yeah baby, bow down to my delusions of grand...err... my big brain!

Cindi in CO said...

Jim,

Yes I did. And on most of the others too.

When you're told your whole life that you look JUST LIKE someone else, you do what you can to convice yourself that you don't THINK alike as well.

Not that it's an insulting comparison by any means, nor does it do much good to fight it.

Hee.

Cindi in CO said...

Spell check anyone?

Janiece Murphy said...

Oooh...David Brin.

Kiln People. One of my favorites.

Janiece Murphy said...

I like monkies.

Cindi in CO said...

I like David Brin.

And monkies too.

Michelle K said...

HA!

I was RIGHT! It's spelled monkeys!

I'm NOT losing my...

err...

(waves while slowly backing out of the room)

Nice weather we're having, 'eh?

Janiece Murphy said...

Heh, heh, we're the Monkeys!

Cindi in CO said...

People say we Monkey around!

Tania said...

Monkey see, monkey do

Janiece Murphy said...

Tania, isn't that the definition of a meme?

I'm Gregory Benford. I've never read his work, but I think I'm gonna have to start.

Funny bit on my reveal: "The real Greg Benford once took this quiz, and it told him he was Arthur C. Clarke."

Apparently, however, with only one changed answer, I turn out to be William Gibson.

Both of these answers strike me as being quite cool.
