Biography

After majoring in, at various times, philosophy, anthropology, linguistics, and physics, I graduated in 1984 from the University of Colorado with a degree in mathematics. An early story, “Shanidar,” won first prize in the Writers of the Future contest, and I was nominated for a Hugo award for best new writer of the year. My bestselling Neverness was shortlisted for the Arthur C. Clark award for the best science fiction novel published in the United Kingdom. A successor trilogy, A Requiem For Homo Sapiens, came next, followed by the four book Ea Cycle, which is a Grail quest to end all Grail quests. I live in Denver, Colorado.
