Short biography
Greg was born in San Diego on August 20th, 1951, to Wilma M. and Dale F. Bear. He sold his first short story at the age of fifteen to the magazine Famous Science Fiction and his first novel, Hegira, appeared in 1979. One of Bear's most famous stories is "Blood Music", which won the Nebula Award and the Hugo Award. Another short story, "Dead Run", was adapted by Alan Brennert for the second Twilight Zone television show. He worked as a freelance journalist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, where he covered all the Voyager planetary encounters for the San Diego Union, as a film commentator for the Los Angeles Times, as a book reviewer for the San Diego Union Book Review supplement, as a bookseller and as lecturer for the San Diego City Schools. He was a founding member of ASFA, the Association of Science Fiction Artists. In the 1980s, Bear served on the Citizens Advisory Council on National Space Policy and as science and speculations advisor for the pilot episode of the Amblin/Universal TV production _Earth 2 (1994) (TV)_. In 1975, he married Christina M. Nielson, but they divorced in 1981. Married to Astrid Anderson (daughter of Poul Anderson) in 1983. They have a son, Erik (born September 1986) and a daughter, Alexandra (born January 1990). His science fiction often draws on his knowledge of biology and anthropology.
