About this title:
Synopsis:
From bestselling author David Brin comes a collected work that takes the reader on a swooping, controversial ride through worlds of fiction, nonfiction and film. Through Stranger Eyes is a freedom-of-expression free-for-all, offering more than two dozen reviews and commentaries that are sure to enlighten and entertain, possibly infuriate, even make you laugh. From carefully measured views on J.R.R. Tolkien to Brin's infamous, outraged rant about the Star Wars saga, to unusual appraisals of familiar and unfamiliar works, you are guaranteed to come away with perspectives you never imagined before. As readers, we have enjoyed Brin's fiction - the Uplift universe, books like Sundiver and Earth. Now venture into the mind and world of the journey into the mind of one of the most popular authors alive today, and see what he sees through stranger eyes.

About the Author:
David Brin is a scientist, public speaker, and author. His novels have been New York Times Bestsellers, winning multiple Hugo, Nebula and other awards. His 1989 ecological thriller, Earth, foreshadowed global warming, cyberwarfare and near-future trends such as the World Wide Web. A 1998 movie, directed by Kevin Costner, was loosely based on The Postman. His fifteen novels have been translated into more than 20 languages. Brin serves on advisory committees dealing with subjects from national defense and homeland security, astronomy and space exploration, to SETI and nanotechnology. His non-fiction book -- The Transparent Society: Will Technology Force Us to Choose Between Freedom and Privacy? won the Freedom of Speech Prize from the American Library Association. As a public "scientist/futurist" David appears frequently on TV, for example in THE ARCHITECHS, THE UNIVERSE and, most recently, LIFE AFTER PEOPLE (the top rated HC show ever). Brin's papers in scientific journals cover an eclectic range of topics from astronautics, astronomy, and optics to alternative dispute resolution and the role of neoteny in human evolution. His Ph.D in Physics was from the University of California at San Diego, an undergraduate degree from Caltech. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the California Space Institute and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. David's novel - Kiln People - is a fast-moving and fun noir detective story, set in a future when new technology enables people to physically be in more than two places at once. A hardcover graphic novel "The Life Eaters"explored alternate outcomes to WWII, winning nominations and high praise in the nation that most loves and respects the graphic novel. David's science fictional Uplift Universe explores a future when humans genetically engineer higher animals like dolphins to become equal members of our civilization. He also recently tied up the loose ends left behind by the late Isaac Asimov. Foundation's Triumph brings to a grand finale Asimov's famed Foundation Universe. As a speaker, David Brin shares unique insights -- serious and humorous -- about ways that changing technology may affect our future lives. Brin lives in San Diego County with his wife, three children, and a hundred very demanding trees. For more information, drop by http://www.davidbrin.com/.
