- — Oliver Franklin (@olifranklin)Tue, Feb 12 2013 04:59:10@SciencePunk Michael Lewis for pacing, David Grann for narrative, Mark Kramer's "Telling True Stories" for everything

- — Tom Chivers (@TomChivers)Tue, Feb 12 2013 04:49:08@SciencePunk David Foster Wallace if you want to see how mind and prose can leap dizzyingly from idea to idea but always return to its theme
- — Diana Probst (@DianaProbst)Tue, Feb 12 2013 04:49:29@SciencePunk Ursula Le Guin. Read the short stories, and type them up, so you really take them in. (Advice applies to anyone you like.)
- — Jon Treadway (@jontreadway)Tue, Feb 12 2013 04:45:01@SciencePunk Wodehouse - crisp prose, stunningly original metaphors, beautiful word play and ear for the music of language
- — Daniel Sellers (@danielsellers)Tue, Feb 12 2013 04:38:07@SciencePunk Ruth Rendell. Crisp, economical prose. Simple but evocative descriptions. Multilayered characterisation. Great plotting.
