Who am I…

alice-shelden1From the recent meme going around to determine “which science fiction writer are you?”

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 have to say I am neither surprised nor displeased with this result. Tiptree is as awesome as they come, and I’m so much happier being her than one of the boys…

Had a fun low-key birthday today.  Happy birthday to Peter Ball, who shares the same day of birth, which I assume means at some point  we will have to go on a cosmic quest together.  Or maybe we’ll just write a were-rave story together, who knows.

  1. Heavens! Happy birthday! (So much for astrology — you and Peter are really not all that similar in personality, although I love you both extravagantly.)

  3. Laura: Yeah, though we get along famously, Peter and I may be a strong case against astrology.

    Chris G: Interesting note – even if one has commented on a particular blog before, if one types the same words in a comment 20 or 30 times, for some reason WordPress gets the notion that it’s spam. 🙂

    Thanks for the bday wishes!
