Which SF Author are you?

The Slush God aka John Joseph Adams, assistant editor of Fantasy and Science Fiction, put a link to a "What Science Fiction Author Are You?" quiz on the F&SF blog today.

Drumroll please...

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?

Hmm. I'm not sure how I feel about that. Could be worse, I guess.

I'm Arthur C. Clarke. Well known for nonfiction science writing and for early promotion of the effort toward space travel, his fiction was often grand and visionary.

A great writer and visionary, so yay me.

William Gibson.

Which is probably the only one that would fit me. :)

I want to be Clifford Simak combined with Isaac Asimov.

Herbert was awesome. Don't let the way his son has micturated all over his old man's legacy put you off. Alright, it's true Herbert only wrote one great SF novel--but what a book! And even some of Herbert's failures still deserve points for breadth and ambition. The McKie books, f'r'instance, don't quite come off, but the premises are wonderful and the ideas spectacular.

In short, I'd rather be Herbert than a few other Golden Age greats, but I won't name names.
