I'm Bear. Or Ebear.
I write books and short stories and Other Things. (I would call myself a writer of Stuff, but Peter David got there first, and writes more Stuff than I do anyway.) I talk about my job, here, and also my cat, and my hobbies, and books I read, and TV shows I watch. Also, I engage in shameless self-promotion.
Come in, sit down.
Feel free to introduce yourselves, comment, ask questions, hang out, help yourself to the snacks.
I can't actually answer all the comments (I have deadlines!) but I do read them all. And you're welcome to have side conversations in the comment threads, and make yourselves at home, as long as you can be polite to each other.
And now I have to go start a short story that just finally gave me its first line*, and start
*"I think--now--I've finally met all of Annie Webber."
