Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
I have a lot of them, from the classics of Heinlein, Asimov, Bradbury and Arthur C Clarke to people like John C Wright and Jerry Pournelle today. I like a lot of books that I don't remember the authors to. Even if I do not like an author it doesn't mean I won't like a book or two of theirs.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Bright sunlight and gravity. Seriously, I usually prefer dreamland to reality.
