Twenty-five of his 33 books are still in print in 10 languages. His short work has appeared in magazines from "Omni" and "Analog to Xhurnal Izobretatel i Rationalizator" (Moscow) and in numerous anthologies. He was chosen by the Heinlein Prize Trust to write "Variable Star" (Tor, 2006), a novel based on a seven-page outline created in 1955 by First Grandmaster Robert A. Heinlein. Spider and his wife, writer Jeanne Robinson, collaborated on the Hugo-, Nebula- and Locus-winning "Stardance Trilogy" (Baen Books, reissued 2006).
