Topic: You are my favorite Sci-Fi Author

Mr. Bear,
I am stationed in Pearl Harbor, HI. Several years ago, I happened upon a copy of "Eon" and spent the weekend glued to its pages. I had never read a science fiction book like that before, with all of the theories and mathematical language. All throughout the years, when I would think sci-fi, I would think about your book. It dawned on me last year that you had probably written more books and that I should look into reading them. Two months ago, I read "Moving Mars", and I absolutely loved it. Mentally, I was on the edge of my seat when Earth was attacking Mars, and the Olympians were preparing to move the planet. I just finished Vitals today and again I loved it. I love how you take realistic, scientific theories and spin them into your novels. I always walk away from your books with a big shiteating grin, trying to figure out how the heck you came up with such a mindbendingly fantastic storyline. You're awesome. Thanks for pursuing your craft, and sharing your stories with the rest of us.

Many thanks, Michael! I've always been fond of submarine action stories, myself--and you're living one! What kind of sub, if I may ask?
