Which SF author are you?

I am:
Stanislav Lem
This pessimistic Pole has spent a whole career telling ironic stories of futility and frustration. Yet he is also a master of wordplay so witty that it sparkles even when translated into English.

Which science fiction writer are you?

I'm glad it's one I've read and like.

I fear, I hadn't even heard about my result:

I am:
Hal Clement (Harry C. Stubbs)
A quiet and underrated master of "hard science" fiction who, among other things, foresaw integrated circuits back in the 1940s.

He wrote, most famously a Question of Gravity. Very nice hard SF about creatures like millipedes on a very high gravity world

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

Which science fiction writer are you?

I was hoping for William Gibson, but I'll happily take Herbert. It's a good one isn't it...

I fear I've always been more into Fantasy than SF, so my knowledge of SF authors is limited.

But as you mention Question of Gravity, I've actually read /about/ him in "Aliens & Alien Socities" by Stanley Schmidt. I enjoyed that book when I was still questing for a most "realistic" world-building in my fantasy campaigns.

Also, it's "Mission of Gravity."

I am St Bill.

Wierd, because he actually is one of my favourite authors. I never excpect these things to give results that you can relate to.
