Robert J. Sawyer

Hugo and Nebula Award-Winning Science Fiction Writer

What’s green and white and red all over? The U of S alumni magazine!

The University of Saskatchewan’s alumni magazine is called Green & White, and the Spring 2009 issue has a nice little piece about my stint (which begins this Monday!) as Writer-in-Residence at the Canadian Light Source. It says:

Taking Up Residence

Award winning Canadian science-fiction writer, Robert J. Sawyer, will call the Canadian Light Source synchrotron (CLS) home for the summer. Sawyer states he will be immersed into the life of the CLS to get the “sensory experience of how scientists argue, eat lunch, their social activities … and you can’t get that on the VIP tour.” Sawyer will spend time working on his own projects, including his next book Wonder (the third book in the WWW trilogy) and an episode for the first season of a TV show based on his novel Flash Forward to be aired on ABC. About half of his time will be dedicated to mentoring other writers on a first come first served basis.

The article is online here and the whole magazine is available for free as a PDF here (I’m on page 8). Kudos to the magazine for a fine bit of close-cropping on the photo of me that they ran, by the way:

(The Canadian Light Source is located on the University of Saskatchewan’s campus.)

Many thanks to my friend Ian Wasserman for drawing this article to my attention.
