Which SF Writer are You?

Fair enough!
I am:
Samuel R. "Chip" Delany
Few have had such broad commercial success with aggressively experimental prose techniques.


Which science fiction writer are you?

The God Emperor of Dune Zone goes all Kyle Mclachlan and ponders:

"Frank Herbert/His style is often stilted, but he created what some consider the greatest SF novel of all time."

I suppose some do...

Is this TjZ? I'm guessing.

I came, as I did some years back, Ursula K. Le Guin. Which seems fair, all things considered.

Must be the Buddhism ;-)

I thought it was the pipe-smoking. (Or not, but that's more ground for jejeune punning.)

With tiresome earnestness, I'd posit the anarchism, the wide-ranging literary interests, and the tendency to go on longer than anyone else is interested in reading at times.

Word Verification: Dorkl. Sure.

K. A. Laity said...

HA HA HA -- I have no control over the word verification, although I wonder if there's some kind of rubric that pulls likely words based on context...

Yes, the pipe -- no doubt!

Todd Mason said...

Well, only a dorkl would so consistently misspell "jejune"...

The Queen said...

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.

I am not in the least bit surprised.....

K. A. Laity said...

Todd -- this is why I dislike non-WYSIWYG languages! Merde!

QoE -- wonderful! I would have liked to get Tiptree, too. I'm not much for awards on the whole, but I would be really honored if I could ever earn a Tiptree.

I'm...
Frank Herbert??

Like my Significant Other...

But I don't like FH's books! I like Samuel Delany!
