Terry Bisson is the author of six novels including Talking Man, a World Fantasy Award nominee, and Fire on the Mountain. His short story, "Bears Discover Fire" swept almost every honor in the SF field in 1990-91, including the Asimov's and Locus readers' awards, both the Nebula and Hugo awards and the Theodore Sturgeon short fiction award. In 2006, Stephen O'Regan's film of Terry's story "They're Made out of Meat" won the Grand Prize at the SF Short Film Festival in Seattle.

His long and interesting list of writing credits also includes movie novelizations, classics-to-comics adaptations, a compilation of NPR's hugely successful program Car Talk with Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers, and most recently, Saint Leibowitz and the Wild Horse Woman, the long-awaited posthumous sequel to A Canticle for Leibowitz, for the estate of Walter M. Miller, Jr.

Terry taught at the Clarion Workshop in 1997 and again in 2002. For additional details, visit his web site.
