Ontario is home to Robert J. Sawyer, “the dean of Canadian science fiction” as described by The Ottawa Citizen, and the man The New York Times calls a master of “bold scientific extrapolation.” Rob is a Hugo and Nebula award winner; this is like winning the Academy Award for scifi for those of us who love the genre. But you may also know him from FlashForward–his work that was turned into an ABC TV series. Not content with just fiction, Rob has also consulted for innovators such as Google, Motorola, NASA, and DARPA.
