Let's keep it light and entertaining (hope it's not too cryptic):

Which American SF writer and political activist unsuccessfully pursued political office between 1999 and 2003? His CV includes Prometheus Awards and an essay "Why Did it Have to be ... Guns?"

I will venture Gene Roddenberry with a 10% confidence level.

His first book was published in 1981 and won him the first of three Pometheus awards.  He has since written or co-written over 20 books, and contributed to a few more.  His work includes SF series, novels, graphic novels and nonfiction as well as several short stories contained in SF anthologies.

Yikes!! Sorry for dropping the ball like this, I was awaaaaay! for a long time.  If anyone is still interested,  it is L Neil Smith, or "El Neil" as he is affectionately known to his fans.  I came across his book "The probability broach" a few years back and was sold to anarchism on the spot.

Not bad! After all this time Gary Brolsma's Numa Numa clip still has the power to turn me from a big Grinch into a mere grouch in one minute flat.

Maiya Hee!!
