Robert J. Sawyer Recommends "The Fiction Writer"

Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of over twenty books, says of The Fiction Writer: Get Published, Write Now!: "I'm impressed...Nina shares the hard-won knowledge she's accumulated...I'm thoroughly enjoying the book, and even learning a thing or two!"

Robert J. Sawyer, called the "dean of Canadian science fiction" by the Ottawa
Citizen and "just about the best science-fiction writer out there these days" by the Denver Rocky Mountain News, is one of only eight writers in history (and the only Canadian) to win all three of the science-fiction field's top honors for best novel of the year: the Hugo Award, the Nebula Award and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award.

Maclean's, Canada's weekly news magazine, says, "by any reckoning, Sawyer is among the most successful Canadian authors ever," and Barnes and Noble calls him "the leader of SF's next-generation pack."

Rob holds an honorary doctorate from Laurentian University; he taught writing at the University of Toronto, Ryerson University, Humber College , the National University of Ireland, and the Banff Centre.
