I scored this:


You are:



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.






Remember - it's only for fun!

Well,


E.E. "Doc" Smith
The inventor of space opera. His purple space war tales remain well-read generations later.

Which is strange when I was much younger I had a "thing" about Grey Lensman.... it must have been the leather uniform.....:eek:

Hal Clement (Harry C. Stubbs)
A quiet and underrated master of "hard science" fiction who, among other things, foresaw integrated circuits back in the 1940s.

Go figure. ;)

Isaac Asimov
One of the most prolific writers in history, on any imaginable subject. Cared little for art but created lasting and memorable tales.

Me and the Good Doctor.

This fits me more than it does Se'Dray on. I will be a scientist, i take 4 different University Prep Sciences and 3 UP Maths. Astronomy and Astropysics, her i come. And I already know i'm a master.

Although the US-politics questions I couldn't really answer, but I'm happy with the result.

Few have had such broad commercial success with aggressively experimental prose techniques.

I wouldn't mind being a master of hard science fiction, but I'm aiming for fantasy first :)

(But when testing the system I had to change loads of questions to get a different author - so I must be very Hal-like)
