Host Ed Goldberg speaks with Greg Bear about his book, "Mariposa," a science fiction novel of a crumbling America, broke and controlled by corporations.
Greg Bear is the author of more than thirty books of science fiction and fantasy, including BLOOD MUSIC, THE FORGE OF GOD, DARWIN'S RADIO, and QUANTICO. Awarded two Hugos and five Nebulas for his fiction, one of two authors to win a Nebula in every category, Bear has been called the “Best working writer of hard science fiction” by “The Ultimate Encyclopedia of Science Fiction.” His novel QUANTICO is a near-future examination of law enforcement, politics, and terror both domestic and religious. DARWIN'S RADIO and DARWIN'S CHILDREN (1999, 2003) form a sequence about viruses and human evolution and are published by Del Rey and HarperCollins UK.
