that fits - now I'll have to look her up

took this silly quiz by way of GrrlScientist.

I am:
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.


Which science fiction writer are you?

Ha! I'm Kurt Vonnegut: "For years, this unique creator of absurd and haunting tales denied that he had anything to do with science fiction."

I am: John Brunner
His best known works are dystopias -- vivid realizations of the futures we want to avoid.

um, okay? jc

James Tiptree, Jr. was a fantastic sf writer. She has an interesting history as well, nobody knew who she was (or that she was a she) for a very long time. But truly, an amazing writer.

I think that it's great that you are blogging about your researd, career and also women life. I thought you might be interested about a women scientist community who shares together about different topics.

Have a nice day !

Hi!
I have been reading your blog for some time now, and I'm desperately curious: what scientific field are you in, specifically? I'm a graduate student in the scientific field myself, and considering a postdoc/whatever life decides to do, and am realllly curious to know what life is like after PhD...but in my field.

If you could just shed some light, I would really appreciate it!

My email is: ps79@buffalo.edu
thankkkkk you!
(ps obviously you don't have to post this)

I'm a fellow scientist but I dislike science fiction.
