Overview

David Brin, Ph.D. is a well-known science fiction author; he has won both the Hugo and Nebula awards. He is also known as a leading commentator on current technological and political trends, and many of these writings are available in various places online.

Edit Notes

I couldn't find any quick-and-easy lists of Brin's online works, so that will be the main function of this page (since Wikipedia covers the rest quite nicely). The Index is by no means complete, but I will be adding to it as time permits. --Woozle 12:36, 5 November 2005 (EST)
