Alison Sinclair SF/F author and scientist in the house

Previous Entry Add to Memories Share Next Entry
She is alixsin and I'm delighted to see her on LJ. Alison wrote some terrific (and Clarke-nominated) SF novels in the late nineties. She has various hardcore science and medical degrees and now writes fantasy with the heavy-duty worldbuilding. I had no idea she had a blog here, but it turns out she posted this fascinating piece 'Who is Qualified to Write SF' in connection with a panel involving papersky over a year ago.

This particular piece is resonating a lot with me right now, both because I'm studying science myself (albeit at entry level) and because I've got a copy of the new(ish) Greg Egan novel to review.  The Egan is making me think about the scientist-writer relationship in all its swerves and particularities.

I would love to see Alison Sinclair produce more hard SF.  Would love.
