Thank you for hard fought!

Posted by Simon HennemN on 08/08/2017

Mr. Bear, I recently read your short story Hard Fought and thought it was one of the best short stories I have ever read. It's still haunting me. Thank you!

I appreciate this a lot, Simon. "Hardfought" helped put me on the map back in the eighties, and it was a tough sell! But Shawna McCarthy at ASIMOV's followed through, and got me one of my first two Nebulas.

I came across Hardfought in a forgotten box of books just recently- and now I am going to have to track down more Greg Bear stuff. Hardfought is a wonderful, haunting and desperately sad little slice of genius; the ideas it contains are interesting, but the emotional journey is something I've never really encountered in a scifi novella before. Well done!

Thanks, CR--it was heavily inspired by folks like Cordwainer Smith and Larry Niven!
