Hi Rich -- I used to exchange emails with Jerry way-back-when (circa the late 1990s) although I'm sure he won't remember me now. In fact I have a framed photo on my office wall that was given to me by Jerry's son, Alex

I ote for Jerry Pournelle. From the look of his blog site (http://www.jerrypournelle.com/jerrypournelle.c/chaosmanor/) he could be quite controversial and thus highly entertaining.

Karen - a friend of mine (an artist who used to run the SFWA parties at Philcon) refers to William Gibson as William "Be still my heart" Gibson. Cory Doctorow is another name that comes to mind.

Max, actually I am quite surprised at easily distracted you are, but we don't need to get into it here. I do rather like the idea of hunting down our science fiction in his or her lair though. My vote - FWIW - is WIlliam Gibson. I met him and Bruce Sterling at a book signing at MIT several years ago and he's cool. Actually they both are.

Neal Stephenson would be a good one. Kim Stanley Robinson - his Mars series is particularly relevant today. John Scalzi would be screamingly hilarious. Maybe he can lead everyone in a sing-along of "Redshirts." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E90oZSY9M-s
