In this brilliant, evocative novel, Greg Bear takes the reader into a strangely familiar, near-future world -- and shatters our conceptions of perfection, punishment, and the elusive nature of the human soul.
"One is ultimately awed... it may be the most ambitious novel I've ever read". -- Washington Post Book World

Greg Bear is one of the great figures of contemporary SF. Winner of both the HUGO and the NEBULA AWARDS, his classic novel EON (part of the Masterworks list) was one of the high concept, grand scale SF novels that reinvented the genre in the 1980s. His novel BLOOD MUSIC is a uniquely uplifting apocalyptic novel about evolution overtaking humanity. He lives in the USA.From Library Journal:
The motivation of the mass-murderer--in this case a noted poet--becomes the subject of investigation by an ambitious policewoman, a renegade psychologist, and the murderer's closest friend. Twenty-first century Los Angeles provides the surrealistic setting for a remarkable exploration of human guilt and fears in the latest novel by the author of Blood Music and Eternity (LJ 10/15/88). Bear's blending of high-tech gloss with penetrating insights into human nature results in a complex and challenging speculative vision of the "country of the mind." Highly recommended.
