For that issue, two decades past, Andrew Weiner — journalist and then-frequent F&SF and Asimov’s contributor — profiled me. Here’s what he had to say: Books in Canada.

  1. Rob:

    Thanks for recalling the interview. It reads well. Fighting the good fight even then! I will quote Spider Robinson’s prescient remark (about RJS as a corporation!) in my next quote book. In fact, I am giving some thought to creating section for “Robert J. Sawyer,” not just including the quip under “Writing” or “Science Fiction.” I will read your Recent Posts for other quotes and quips. Always open to suggestions.
