Praise for Bears Discover Fire and Other Stories

"Highly recommended . . . brilliantly original . . . every story showcases Bisson's keen intelligence and distinctive gift for deliciously wry prose."—Booklist

"Bisson's prose is a wonder of seemingly effortless control and precision; he is one of science fiction's most promising short story practioners."--Publisher's Weekly

"His quick jabs to the funny bone and the intellect often are more powerful than many a lesser artist's attempt at a knockout punch."—San Diego Union-Tribune
