Meet the Author

David Brin is a scientist, public speaker and world-known author. His novels have been New York Times Bestsellers, winning multiple Hugo, Nebula and other awards. At least a dozen have been translated into more than twenty languages.


His 1989 ecological thriller, Earth, foreshadowed global warming, cyberwarfare and near-future trends such as the World Wide Web. A 1998 movie, directed by Kevin Costner, was loosely based on his post-apocalyptic novel, The Postman. David's novel Kiln People has been called a book of ideas disguised as a fast-moving and fun noir detective story, set in a future when new technology enables people to physically be in more than two places at once. A hardcover graphic novel The Life Eaters explored alternate outcomes to WWII, winning nominations and high praise.


David's science fictional Uplift Universe explores a future when humans genetically engineer animals to join our civilization.

I usually like Brin's stuff, and I was looking forward to an enjoyable short story, but this is crap. In fact by the end of it Brin admits it himself.

Jesting; over the top. Certainly not part of the canon. Still, some may enjoy it.
