“They named me Kristin after some whale scientist in Australia, worked on the original translation team.”
Richard K. Morgan, Altered Carbon

Brandon Sanderson
“If something had been done one way for such a long time, he figured there was probably a good reason. Behind him stood the shadowed cubbies of a cobbler’s”
Brandon Sanderson, Words of Radiance

“But, in general, research shows that in order for extraterrestrials to detect our signals, we must broadcast at a power level equal to the energy output of a midsized star.”

G. Willow Wilson
“Many of us prefer to live in places abandoned by humans. Less work for us. Detroit is very popular.”
G. Willow Wilson, Alif the Unseen

“No. I failed. Her world was too simple, and all she had were ethereal theories. When they collapsed, she had nothing to lean on to keep on living.” “Professor Ye, I can’t say that I agree with you. Right now, events are happening that are beyond our imagination. It’s an unprecedented challenge to our theories about the world, and she’s not the only scientist to have stumbled down that path.” “But she was a woman. A woman should be like water, able to flow over and around anything.”
