Example text

In the hands of a lesser writer, this might have been no more than a routine space opera, but Bear’s strong scientific grounding resulted in a consistent and credible cosmology, and the human story is powerful and moving. In 1988 Bear would produce a sequel, Eternity, which is slightly less successful but is still engaging and filled with thought-provoking concepts. It was clear that Blood Music had not been a fluke and that Bear was emerging as one of the leading writers of hard science fiction.

His novellength works during this period were collaboratively written space adventures and a solo novel for young adults; none of these were particularly memorable. The first really notable novel came in 1977. In the Ocean of Night blends space opera with a firstcontact story. An abandoned alien starship is discovered concealed in a comet, and the technological secrets it contains result in the transformation of human civilization. Years later, signals from space indicate that an alien race has sent emissaries who will be arriving in the near future, but the various powers on Earth are divided about whether to welcome the visitors or drive them away.

During the 1990s Bear’s novels became more introspective, less reliant on grand settings and a canvas as large as the universe. Moving Mars (1993) is a realistic portrayal of an emerging independence movement in the Martian colonies, told from the point of view of a prominent woman who Bear, Greg 31 rises to become leader of the insurgents. The characterization is much richer than in Bear’s previous novels, and the scale of events, although large in terms of its characters, is considerably smaller than in his previous work.
