39. Connie Willis is the best!

I love almost everything she's written. Make sure you realize that Blackout is only the first half of the book. The second half is All Clear. And yes, it's a second half, not a sequel. She wrote one very long novel and the publisher decided it was best to put it out in two volumes.

Her most recent book is Crosstalk, about telepathy. It was okay, but it's not one of my favorites. She is back to work on her Roswell novel, and is apparently considering writing another of the time travel novels. Hooray!

Connie is also a very nice person. I've had the pleasure of meeting her at various science fiction events I go to. She is warm, friendly, wonderfully opinionated, DESPISES Trump and is very vocal about it.
