Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This collection of Greg Bear's major short fiction ably demonstrates why Bear is one of science fiction's most popular authors. The multiple Hugo and Nebula Award winner offers here a feast of his most famous stories and novellas, accompanied by thoughtful introductions and afterwords that provide insight into the writer and his process.

This collection contains Bear's earliest published fiction from the late 1960s and early 1970s as well his remarkable award-winning work from the 1980s and 1990sstories like the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning novella-length version of "Blood Music" and the Hugo and Nebula Award-winner "Tangents." Also included are The Wind from a Burning Woman," in which despair and anger inspire a young woman's terrible act of vengeance; "The White Horse Child," a loving look at the nascence of the creative impulse; "Dead Run," in which the road to hell is paved with concrete, and not all intentions are good; and over twenty others.

Greg Bear sold his first short story, at the age of fifteen, to Robert Lowndes's Famous Science Fiction. Since then, he has written twenty novels. Bear is married to Astrid Anderson, and they, and their two children, live near Seattle, Washington.

"Bear's short fiction [is] worthy of anyone's contemplation and enjoyment . . . Bear's introductions to the stories are some of the best ever done by an author for his own stuff, especially for what they impart about his literary roots. A mandatory acquisition."Roland Green, Booklist

"Fans will welcome The Collected Stories of Greg Bear, a hefty compendium of shorter fiction from the Hugo and Nebula awards winner. Introductions to each story, an illuminating general introduction and an appendix with Bear's commentary on his work enhance the package."Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Greg Bear is one of the greatest science fiction writers of the late twentieth century. He has a powerful voice, combining the intense rationality of science with the intensely passionate characters that can only be created by a writer who loves humanity. Bears novel Moving Mars won the Nebula Award in 1994, and he did it again, in 2000, with Darwins Radio. He has been honored with Hugo and Nebula nominations for novel-length work eight more times.

But Greg Bears short fiction is even more astounding, as this powerful career retrospective demonstrates. This collection contains Bears earliest published fiction from the late 1960s and early 1970s as well his remarkable award-winning work from the ‘80s and ‘90s—stories like the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning novella- length version of “Blood Music” and the Hugo and Nebula Award-winner “Tangents.”

This Collection is enhanced by brand-new introductions for each story, commentary, and reminiscences by Greg Bear.
