Hadn't heard about Jack Chalker. Another requiring a time machine would be Ray Bradbury. I'm seeing so many names here that I have forgotten that I read in the distant past. I think the Well of Souls would require a full season on TV. With the special effects available today it could be fantastic

I'd vote for a Dr Who author. Somewhere, between 3rd doctor and 8th doctor. Plenty of authors to choose from!

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
