Join us as we host in conversation science fiction legends Gregory Benford and Larry Niven.
Gregory is an author, physicist, and educator. Currently, he is a professor of physics at UC Irvine, where he also conducts research in plasma turbulence theory and experiment, and in astrophysics. Gregory has also served as an advisor to the Department of Energy, Nasa and the White House Council on Space Policy. As far as his novel writings, he has written over twenty works, which have won him two Nebula awards, the John W. Campbell Award, the Australian Ditmar Award, and other honors.
Larry’s love of science drove him to write stories on the cutting edge of scientific discovery throughout his career. In 1964, his first published story The Coldest Place was featured in Worlds of If. For the next four decades, he has kept on writing with no signs of stopping. During his long career, he’s received numerous Hugo, Nebula, Locus, and several other awards.
Glorious is the continuation of Gregory and Larry’s co-written Bowl of Heaven series of books. In this hard science fiction novel, audacious astronauts encounter bizarre, sometimes deadly life forms, and strange, exotic, cosmic phenomena. Tasked with exploring this brave, new, highly dangerous world, they must also deal with their own personal triumphs and conflicts.
