Who says nerds have to be people.
Nerds can be universities!
Well, now WVU is getting props — as the cool people say, or used to say… whatever — in the April/May 2011 edition of Asimov’s Science Fiction magazine.
In the spotlight is a speech by James Gunn, the author of Isaac Asimov: The Foundations of Science Fiction, at WVU’s Festival of Ideas.
In the preface to the article “Celebrating Isaac,” Gunn notes his visit to Morgantown as well as WVU Chief of Staff Jay Cole and “his marvelous assistant Molly Simis” who “came up with the happy idea of featuring a talk about Isaac, in large part because the library’s special collections have what probably is the largest collection of Asimov materials after that held by Boston University.”
