Where SF Writers Work...

Kyle Cassidy has created a fascinating photo series that he's titled Where I Write. It features the workspaces of authors and most of the authors used are SF writers. So you can see which ones live in messy houses piled with books and which ones keep everything neat as a button. Some of the interesting things I noticed:
  • Michael Swanwick not only had to make extra shelves to hold all of his awards, he has a pedestal for one of his Nebulas.
  • Samuel Delany works in a closet that he insulates with paperbacks.
  • Joe Haldeman writes things out long hand by candlelight.
It's an interesting set of photos and while I think Cassidy uses a perspective distorting lens far too much it's great to catch a glimpse into these writers lives.
