I'm a crossword puzzle clue!

I'm the answer to clue 36-Down in the May 4, 2009, crossword puzzle in The Globe and Mail: Canada's National Newspaper. The clue is:

Robert ____ (renowned Canadian novelist)

You can access it online here.

Many thanks to my old friend CBC Radio producer Doug MacDonald (who produced "What If? An Exploration of Alternative Histories," a two-hour Ideas documentary series I wrote and narrated in 1990) for bringing this to my attention.

Update: Holy cow! Turns out I was also independently the answer to a clue in the crossword puzzle in The Toronto Star on Saturday, May 2: 76-Down was "Science-fiction author, first writer-in-residence at the Canadian Light Source (Saskatoon)." How cool is that?

Darn, I got it wrong. I tried to write "JSAWYER" into the puzzle and messed everything up. Too bad I used pen. :(

Seriously, that's really cool, Rob.
