Here at The Portalist, we had the honor of speaking with the multiple Nebula and Hugo Award-winning author about the classic science fiction and fantasy books that inspired him over the years.
As Bear discussed his love for Mark Twain’s A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court and H.G. Wells’s The Time Machine, we realized that these titles deserve a home in every science fiction and fantasy fan’s collection. So we worked with the Moving Mars author on curating a list of his top five classic books of all time. In return, Bear offered to write an original essay about his love for each title—and why these books are still incredibly influential today.
The result is an exclusive, brand-new collection, titled Journeys Through Time and Space: 5 Classic Novels of Science Fiction and Fantasy.
For a limited time, you can purchase this five-book bundle exclusively through The Portalist for a discounted price of $2.99 USD. On July 11, it will be released through all retailers at its full retail price ($5.99).
