Apparently this month is “Author August” at the Science Fiction Message Board. Each day, they celebrate a different SF writer.

(To those people who will inevitably complain that so-and-so is not on the list, maybe you should go nominate someone next year. They pretty much just fill up the list as people suggest names.)

I’ll admit that I’m not familiar with many of the names on the list, but I was absolutely thrilled to see that today’s author is Vernor Vinge. I’ve been a huge fan ever since I read A Fire Upon the Deep in 2004. As an added bonus (well, to me anyway, because I find that sort of thing hot), he’s a computer scientist and a former mathematics professor at SDSU.
