Greg Bear on Correlations

Over on Correlations, my co-blogger Damon Gambuto has started a new series: “Science Fiction Friday”, and guess who is featured for the first one? Greg Bear!

I’ve really enjoyed his writing over many years, starting with the first books of his I read in quick succession (“Legacy”, and “Forge of God”, along with their follow-up works), right up to the very good “Darwin’s Radio”. I’ve not read anything more recent of his yet.

Anyway, the interview (which will be in several parts) looks really good and interesting (it includes reflections on the recent visit of a group of science fiction writers (the “Sigma” group) to Department of Homeland Security to advise on security matters).

Have a look!

    Hi, Clifford!

    Thanks for the heads up to your readers. Greg Bear is a great interview. Speaking of Correlations posts. . . your “Black Hole Death Ray” post:

    My favorite is the extension of the Foundation series with Benford and Brin (the three Bs). Let’s see if a link to amazon works even though it’s not showing up right in preview…

    Speaking of the Foundation series, one of my favorite all time quotes seems appropriate for the holiday season as well as every other season:
