Transcript DAMON KNIGHT, whose long career in science fiction began, like Fred Pohl's, with membership in The Futurians, has written the history of that group (The Futurians, 1977).' With the publication of In Search of Wonder, 1967 he also became the most outstanding critic of the genre. As an author he is most admired for his classic short stories ("To Serve Man," "Four in One," "Babel II," "Country of the Kind," "Stranger Station," "Masks") which have been collected in Far Out, Off Center and Turning On. His novels include Hell's Pavement, The People Maker, Masters of Evolution and The Gun Saboteurs. But it is as an editor that he has had the greatest impact on the field. Beginning with Popular Publications (Super Science Stories, Worlds Beyond), Berkley Books, and If, he reached the peak of his influence in the late sixties and early seventies with the Orbit series of anthologies, which were credited with establishing the boom in original story collections and, which set standards of quality for the field; dozens of Orbit authors, (including Gene Wolfe) won nominations for Hugo and Nebula Awards. Knight was also founder of the influential Milford Science Fiction Writers Conference, the first workshop of its kind. He also served as a founder and first president of the Science Fiction Writers of America; and he has written a biography of the iconoclast, Charles Fort, Prophet of the unexplained. His most recent book is The World and Thorinn, 1980, a novelization of three fantasy tales first published in Galaxy in 1968. FRITZ LEIBER, a Grand Master of Fantasy, is also a multiple a- ward winner for his science fiction and his tales of the supernatural. With Robert E. Howard, he is credited with inventing the "sword & sorcery" genre, and his series heroes, Fafhrd and The Grey Mouser, are as well known as Howard's Conan the Barbarian. (He's also a regular columnist for Fantasy Newsletter, where his autobiography is now running in installments.) Most recently, his classic science fiction novel, The Big Time, has been presented as a play at the Babcock Theatre in Salt Lake City, while his classic horror novel, Conjure Wife, has been filmed twice (once as Weird Woman, later as Burn Witch Burn) and also adapted for television. Among award-winning authors, Leiber is also distinguished by having won both the Hugo and Nebula Awards in the same year on three different occasions, the only author ever to have done so. He has also received Lovecraft and August Derleth awards for his supernatural fiction. The Leiber canon is too long to survey here, but outstanding titles besides those mentioned above include Gather Darkness, The Wanderer, Our Lady of Darkness, The Green Millenium, Sixth Column, Destiny Times Three, and two of the Fafhrd & Grey Mouser Series, Swords & Deviltry (which includes the award-winning "111 Met in Lankhmar") and The Swords of Lankhmar, which has been called the finest of modern heroic fantasies. After graduation from the University of Chicago, Leiber first acted with a Shakespearean repertory company, and then briefly in films; he also attended theological seminary, and preached in small churches for a year. He began his writing career in 1939 as a regular contributor to John Campbell's Unknown. KATE WILHELM, a special guest and member of the Writers' Workshop faculty, has published twenty books of fiction, including five story collections, and has edited two anthologies. Her works have been translated into ten different languages, and are part of the permanent library at Blair House in Washington. She wrote the original scenario for the stage production, Axolotl. She was co-director of the Milford Science Fiction Writers' Conference from 1963-1976, and has been a guest lecturer at the Clarion Science Fiction and Fantasy Workshop since 1969. She has conducted workshops in many different states, and in Colombia, South America. Among the awards she has received for her fiction are the Nebula Award (for the story, "The Planners"), and the Jupiter, Locus Poll and Hugo Awards, all three for her novel, Where Late The Sweet Birds Sang. Her works are regularly among nominees for Hugo and Nebula Awards each year. She also received the French Apollo Award for Juniper Time. She is married to editor, critic and science fiction author Damon Knight; they have "six children between us." Kate likes gardening and cats (she has four). Her latest published novel is Oh, Susannah! (Houghton Mifflin, 1982) and she has recently finished a new one, Welcome Chaos.
