If I were a SpringerVerlag Graduate Text in Mathematics, I would be J.P. Serre's Linear Representations of Finite Groups.
My creator is a Professor at the College de France. He has previously published a number of books, including Groupes Algebriques et Corps de Classes, Corps Locaux, and Cours d'Arithmetique (A Course in Arithmetic, published by SpringerVerlag as Vol. 7 in the Graduate Texts in Mathematics).

Scared now...

If I were a SpringerVerlag Graduate Text in Mathematics, I would be Robin Hartshorne's Algebraic Geometry.
My creator studied algebraic geometry with Oscar Zariski and David Mumford at Harvard, and with J.P. Serre and A. Grothendieck in Paris. After receiving his Ph.D. from Princeton in 1963, he became a Junior Fellow at Harvard, then taught there for several years. In 1972 he moved to California where he is now Professor at the University of California at Berkeley. My siblings include "Residues and Duality" (1966), "Foundations of Projective Geometry (1968), "Ample Subvarieties of Algebraic Varieties" (1970), and numerous research titles. My creator's current research interest is the geometry of projective varieties and vector bundles. He has been a visiting professor at the College de France and at Kyoto University, where he gave lectures in French and in Japanese, respectively.
My creator is married to Edie Churchill, educator and psychotherapist, and has two human sons and one daughter. He has travelled widely, speaks several foreign languages, and is an experienced mountain climber. He is also an accomplished musician, playing flute, piano, and traditional Japanese music on the shakuhachi.

If I were a SpringerVerlag Graduate Text in Mathematics, I would be Lawrence C. Washington's Introduction to Cyclotomic Fields.
I am a carefully written exposition of a central area of number theory that can be used as a second course in algebraic number theory. Starting at an elementary level, I cover padic Lfunctions, class numbers, cyclotomic units, Fermat's Last Theorem, and Iwasawa's theory of Z_{p}extensions, leading the reader to an understanding of modern research literature. Many exercises are included.

If I were a SpringerVerlag Graduate Text in Mathematics, I would be J.L. Doob's Measure Theory.
I am different from other books on measure theory in that I accept probability theory as an essential part of measure theory. This means that many examples are taken from probability; that probabilistic concepts such as independence, Markov processes, and conditional expectations are integrated into me rather than being relegated to an appendix; that more attention is paid to the role of algebras than is customary; and that the metric defining the distance between sets as the measure of their symmetric difference is exploited more than is customary.
