Certainly the romance element is strong in Bear's work, as is the cyberpunk theme of literally remaking humanity. In a 1960 survey of the field, New Maps of Hell, British novelist Kingsley Amis wrote that science fiction deals with events that could not happen in the world we know but are presented on the basis of some innovation in science or technology.
