“Sharing aspects of Calrke's Rendevouz with Rama, its uniqueness arises from bear's bold imagination. Bear is a writer of passionate vision. Eon is his grandest work yet.” ―Locus
“Eon may be the best constructed hard SF epic yet.” ―The Washington Post
About the Author
Greg Bear sold his first short story, at the age of fifteen, to Robert Lowndes's Famous Science Fiction. Since then, he has written some twenty novels, including The Forge of God, Slant, and Moving Mars. A winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards, Bear is married to Astrid Anderson, and they, and their two children, live near Seattle, Washington.

I read EON shortly after it was published in 1985, I think. I enjoyed it then in a print edition, probably paperback. So far as I can remember, there were few if any manuscript errors. Not so with this edition from Open Road Media. Mr. Bear has been poorly served by this e-media specialty house. The Publisher of the 2014 e edition owes us all a corrected file.
Amazon, you need to lay down standards for the books you sell. Your customers deserve well crafted editions. So do your authors. Those of us who read print editions, expect near perfection as the standard. Why should be receive less from you? If a file is corrected, make sure those of us who bought an imperfect one, or an early draft of a book that's later published in more finished form, get the final file, each and every time.
Greg Bear is one of the masters who is capable of imagining worlds that don't exist and filling them with detail. I liked it then. I like it now.
Bear likes to move things around in his novels. Sometimes he moves planets and always people traveling vast distances. In Eon Bear moves space time and universes. Eon is a hugely ambitious novel with a Latina math prodigy as a key character. The other characters are fully realized and enhance the story.
