I'll Be Damned!

I am:
Ursula K. LeGuin
Perhaps the most admired writing talent in the science fiction field.

Which science fiction writer are you?

Those stupid quizzes are catnip, aren't they? Even when you know they are worthless, you take them.

I came out Le Guin as well, although my first response to every single question was, "I don't like any of the answers! Invalid implied alternative here! The very question is lame!"

The first time someone posted the test and I took it, I went back and jiggled a few answers (from the least inappropriate to the second least), and came out, I think, Chip Delany.

Maureen McHugh "is" Gregory Benford. Say what?

No kidding. I found that if I answered as close to honestly as I could, I came out as LeGuin, but if I jiggered one or two questions to the next best answer I came out as Alice Sheldon. So then, of course, you have to go in and start fooling with stuff, trying to get, say, Robert Heinlein or William Gibson, just to see what would do it. Closest I got was Hal Clement.

As someone commented elsewhere, a lot of the questions seemed aimed at discovering at-con behavior than looking at the work itself.
