He is best known for his Callahan stories, about the most bizarre band of barflies you're likely to meet in this or any other galaxy, and for the Hugo and Nebula-winning Stardance Sequence, Stardance, Starseed, and Starmind, written with his wife, writer/choreographer Jeanne Robinson. His opinion column “Future Tense” has appeared in Canada's national newspaper, The Globe and Mail, since 1996.
