I normally wouldn’t introduce myself but this seems like a small but friendly group and since you all seem to enjoy Connie Willis I figure I’ll give it a shot. I'm AthenaMuze. HI.

I’m sure you’ve all been through this but please indulge me if you will. How did you all learn about her?

I actually found her in college in a Sci-Fi Literature class. I went to the same University that she did (it’s creepy reading “Chance” because I know exactly the places she talks about in the story) and she was invited to speak at the convention the class was putting on. We had to read Doomsday Book in the class and I was hooked. I have since dug up every bit of her stuff I could get my hands on.

Well anyhow, I wanted to pop in and say HI to you all and see if I could get a discussion going…

The founder of this community, who happens to be one of my best friends, practically forced her down my throat. I'm grateful for it though. I've only had time to read a little of her stuff, but I hope to find time for more this summer.

Hmmm...how did I get into Connie Willis? I think around the time I started to get really into sci-fi, I started reading about women sci-fi writers, and her name kept cropping up. My name is Connie also, so it stuck. Then I read To Say Nothing of the Dog and Doomsday Book, and I was hooked.
