About the author (2010)

Greg Bear is one of the greats of SF. His classic novel EON (part of the SF Masterworks list) was part of the boom in high concept, grand scale SF from the USA that revitalised the genre in the 1980s. His novel BLOOD MUSIC is an uniquely uplifting apocalyptic novel about evolution overtaking mankind. He has won both the HUGO and NEBULA AWARDS. He lives in the USA.
