Random quote: "Belief in one's identity as a poet or writer prior to the acid test of publication is as naive and harmless as the youthful belief in one's immortality... and the inevitable disillusionment is just as painful." - Dan Simmons (Hyperion)

I saw the headline for it but have not watched it yet.  I'll try to get to it at lunch today.

I love her. Her conversations with Margaret Atwood where Atwood tries to wriggle away from being labelled an SF author and Le Guin pins her with common sense are most amusing.
