I Have A Bad Feeling About This

I Wanna Recount

Fellow 2004 Clarion traveler slithytove did the "Which SF Author Are You?" and got Hal Clement. So I figured I'd try, but had a hard time figuring out which answers to use, because several did NOT fit what I am trying to write. I knew it would send me off to the far reaches of space, and I got:

I am:
E.E. "Doc" Smith
The inventor of space opera. His purple space war tales remain well-read generations later.

Which science fiction writer are you?

Actually, I kindof like E.E. "Doc" Smith, and lord knows his space opera was written with serious purple prose. But I don't think I write that way. Really -- no.

So I Tried Again

... and changed some answers and got:

I am:
Isaac Asimov
One of the most prolific writers in history, on any imaginable subject. Cared little for art but created lasting and memorable tales.

Which science fiction writer are you?

Hmm. I suppose if I tried a little harder I might get Robert Heinlein. (grin) I think a blender might be needed. Seriously.
