Bear was author of more than 50 books, including the Forge of God series, The Way series, and the Darwin series.

He was nominated for multiple awards, including the Arthur C Clarke award for Eon and Darwin's Children, the Hugo for Darwin's Radio and the Forge of God, and the Nebula for the Forge of God.

He won the Nebula for Moving Mars, and both Nebula and Hugo awards for shorter works.

In addition Bear was one of the founders of the San Diego Comic Con.


I also fondly remember his two novel fantasy series, The Infinity Concerto and The Serpent Mage. They were centered on the coming of age of a young man into the leading mage of modern-day Earth. They come from early in Greg Bear's career but already show his promise.

If you enjoy modern takes on fantasy, they are quite readable if a bit slow at the start.
