Science fiction writer and futurist Robert J. Sawyer has been interviewed over 350 times on radio, over 350 times on television, and countless times in print. A member of the Order of Canada, he lives in Mississauga, Ontario (just outside Toronto).

"Thank you very much! Your sparky anecdotes, sharp analysis, and agility in switching between the world of sci-fi and the real world made the program flow very smoothly." —Irene Chang, BBC World Service, London

Rob is one of only eight writers in history — and the only Canadian — to win all three of the world's top Science Fiction awards for best novel of the year: the Hugo, the Nebula, and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award.

"When asked who my favourite person in the world to interview is, my answer is always 100% Robert J. Sawyer, because he's so smart and his answers are always killer." —Teddy Wilson, host of InnerSpace
