- — Tom Chivers (@TomChivers)Tue, Feb 12 2013 12:49:08@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 12:49:29@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 12:45:01@SciencePunk Wodehouse - crisp prose, stunningly original metaphors, beautiful word play and ear for the music of language
- — Daniel Sellers (@danielsellers)Tue, Feb 12 2013 12:38:07@SciencePunk Ruth Rendell. Crisp, economical prose. Simple but evocative descriptions. Multilayered characterisation. Great plotting.
- — David Dobbs (@David_Dobbs)Tue, Feb 12 2013 12:22:45@SciencePunk I love Virginia Tufte’s “The Artful Sentence”. Allow yourself to jump around in it. Digest in slow helpings as you write.
