Gary K. Wolfe reviews Greg Bear

Toward the end of Greg Bear’s rather grim new hard-SF novel Hull Zero Three, there’s a brief memory-idyll in which the narrator, known only as Teacher (though at one point he’s told his name is Sanjay) recalls sitting with his beloved in an almost Disney-like forest glade surrounded by deer, bears, squirrels, and rainbow-colored fish [...]

The setup is just as intriguing, the characters are a lot more interesting, and the script is easily ten times smarter. Lawrence Person: Monsters is an extended [...]
