Author Info
David Brin
Following the archetypal model for a "hard" science fiction writer, Glen David Brin has a science background--he has a B.S. in astronomy from the California Institute of Technology, an M.S. in applied physics from U.C. San Diego, and a Ph.D. in space science. He has worked as an engineer at the Hughes Aircraft Company, given lectures on topics ranging from ecology to extraterrestrial life, and served on numerous advisory committees dealing about the "information superhighway." This background has infused his fiction-writing career, giving such books as his six-volume Uplift series, 1985's THE POSTMAN, and 1990's EARTH the kind of solid groundwork that has helped to propel them into the ranks of bestsellers, and won him numerous awards in the process. The first three books of the Uplift series--a complex story of assisted evolution on an interstellar scale consisting of SUNDIVER (1980), STARTIDE RISING (1983), and THE UPLIFT WAR (1987)--made Brin one of the most successful and popular, not to mention important, hard science fiction writers to appear on the scene. Subsequent works like the second group of three Uplift books, GLORY SEASON in 1993 and his award-winning, 1995 collection, OTHERNESS, have only served to increase his reputation.
