The Collected Stories of Greg Bear (Tom Doherty Associates Book)

The Collected Stories of Greg Bear (Tom Doherty Associates Book) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

His powerful voice combines the rationality of science with intensely passionate characters that can only be created by a writer who loves humanity. This collection contains Bear's earliest published fiction from the late 1960s and early 1970s as well his remarkable award-winning work from the '80s and '90s, plus all-new introductions written by the author.

In a genre whose borders are shaped and defined by its short fiction, here is a collection from one of its finest practitioners.
