Why I Love Science Fiction

As a young reader, I was passionate about the wonder of the planets and stars, and humanity’s future among them. To me, the greatest adventure conceivable was to explore the universe. Now, as a writer, I see the same possibilities, multiplied.

Imagine human cultures of the future, or of a different past or present. See alien worlds, through alien eyes, without having to wait for a ticket on an actual starship. Explore the human soul and scientific possibilities, question the nature of reality, and wrestle with the light and lightning of God.

Science fiction, for me, is a high dive into a world of infinite possibilities, a ticket to the best ride in the best amusement park in the universe. That’s the kind of ride I hope to give you when you open one of my books.

Lifetime Achievement Award

In 2022, I was honored to receive the Helicon Awards’ Frank Herbert Lifetime Achievement Award.

Besides putting me in the excellent company of previous recipients, it told me that there’s a group of people out there who truly appreciate my work. You can’t put a price on that kind of encouragement.
