What SF writer are you?

I am:
Philip K. Dick
The brilliant yet trashy master of the reality warp always left you unsure of what was real, but never forgot compassion.


Which science fiction writer are you?



'Two cows' jokes (SF edition)

"You have two cows. One of them watches you when your back is turned. The other has stolen your drugs on behalf of the government."

I got Gregory Benford.

I have never read Gregory Benford.

Should I be happy?

That's because he's a TRUFAX scientist like you.

ETA 'You have two cows. One is at the centre of the Galaxy, the other is travelling backwards in time'

Good God, I'm William Gibson.

That's actually...kinda cool!

I did not get the cow joke thing, so I googled like a good girl and now I sort of do get it.

Robert Jordan: You have a black, long-horned bull that stands fully eight handspans across the shoulders and bellows with a deep, rumbling sound that ends in a high-pitched scream, and a small, brown-and-white cow with a gently-curving pair of horns and liquid, placid brown eyes, her manner belied by the heavy gold ring in her nose, shaped like a snake eating its own tail, and by the shimmering glow of saidar that surrounds her. The fact that you can see this glow is proof that you, too, are a female. "Bossy Sedai!" you say with a reverent curtsy.

I'm ashamed to say I don't think I've read anything by him. Do you recommend anything?

Mission of Gravity is his most famous book, but I've also read one (can't remember the title right now) about aliens whose normal environment was several hundreds degrees Celcius, who traded precious metals for tobacco, which was extremely addictive to them.

I read it long ago, but I love listening to books, even when I've read them before. It's more relaxing than reading. It sort of washes over you.

I'm Cordwainer Smith. I have two cows, but they're crazed mutant attack cows trained to defend Mother Hitton's Littul Kittons.
