Favorite Authors: Connie Willis

Connie Willis is one of the great ones of science fiction, in my opinion. She’s probably best known for her time-traveling Oxford series, which was certainly my entry into her work and which remain my favorites. But she’s also co-written several books with Cynthia DeFelice and has a wide range of other works. With the exception of The Doomsday Book, which I loved but am not sure I can ever re-read because it’s so sad, her books tend to be a mixture of funny and emotional, with quite a few muddles and misunderstandings along the way. In the Oxford books, she has created a future that I care deeply about, even though I know it will never actually come to be, but which I want to return to again and again.
