(SPOILER) Summer Glau on next week's "The 4400." Appearing once again as Tess in episode 3.11, "Terrible Swift Sword".

There's no mention of her in the description of next week's episode but she is in the preview, which you can see on the main page of the site.

I didn't see anything about her but I did take their test. And I'm a bighearted healer! Nice.
ooh... this has turned into a nice little revurring role for her - go Sum!
Yeah, madmolly, I took it, too, and was very, well, I guess, interested to find out that I would be a Mind Control Master. Sheesh. Hardly.

I am much happier with the results of Which Science Fiction Writer Are You, which I took recently, if I focus on the marvelous Dune, which I love, and not his subsequent novels. (You can take the quiz here -- your results may surprise you...)
They are having a marathon on Aug 27th... you can catch both episodes then too and maybe if you haven't seen this season.

But I don't know why they sandwiched two episodes of Law & Order: SVU between the marathon and the finale.
Okay QuoterGal, I took the quiz and I turned out to be Samuel R. "Chip" Delany. Which I am sorry to say I have never heard of. So I will have to look him up and start reading.
I took the quiz and ended up as Ursula K. Leguin, which is ironic since one of her books is one of two that I have put down rather than finish.
I'm UKL, too, zeitgeist, which is not a problem for me since I'm a big fan. Which book was the one you didn't finish?
Bleah. I want to be Leguin, but ended up as James Tiptree, Jr. (Alice B. Sheldon). Whoever that is.
William Gibson. Never read him.
Wow I thought she was back for one episode only!
Great, I really love Tess (The 4400 is interesting again :D)
I'm apparently Cordwainer Smith (Paul M.A. Linebarger), someone else I've never heard of. SNT, I haven't read any William Gibson yet, but plan to after I attended a panel discussion with him and Spider Robinson, where they both read excerpts from their latest books, Spider's being the novel based on an outline by Robert Heinlein and only recently discovered.
Hey, before this goes off the front page, I thought you folks who took the Sci-Fi Writer Quiz should hear this from Paul Kienitz, who created it:

"To my surprise, the Science Fiction Writer quiz suddenly became popular among real science fiction writers. Like, Jerry Pournelle took the test, and it told him he was not Jerry Pournelle, but Robert Heinlein."

Also, there is a pretty amusing blog (& comments) from folks who tried to game the quiz to come out happier, and their lack of success: Making Light's Sci-Fi Quiz blog discussion.
