Without a doubt...Greg Bear. Runs or has run with many Grand Masters of Sci-Fi including Heinlein, Clarke and Asimov. He wrote a Foundation book for goodness sake...how many get chosen to do that? Has written Halo, Star Trek AND Star Wars books and wrote one of the absolute hands down BEST hard sci-fi books of all time...EON (The Way is mind blowing!!!) Nebula award winner...nominated numerous times for Clark, Hugo and other prestigious awards...this guy ROCKS sci-fi. If you haven't picked up a Greg Bear book...run to your local laptop and hammer Amazon for one or forty. Could easily see him being designated a Grand Master someday.

David Brin writes the best hard science fiction.

My vote is for Larry Niven. He's been my fav for decades.

Although I won't be able to attend, I would vote for Jack Chalker or Orson Scott Card. Actually, since I am an old coot, I really would prefer Isaac Asimov or Arthur C. Clark. Impossible, I know, unless one of the time travel experts could get them there. BTW, I am currently reading Winter's Tale at your recommendation.

In order of preference, my vote: William Gibson "The future is already here. It just isn't evenly distributed." "...the street finds its own uses for things" Neal Stephenson Cory Doctorow
