Author Pages and Links(work in progress)

Clicking on the initial link will take you to the web site (or possibly a fan web site) of the author. If a site is unknown to us, then the name is in bold.

We decided to put up the page with just a few authors since it might help someone. Please e-mail us at [email protected] if you would like to see an author added or just check back every once in a while and see if the author has been added. We would also appreciate e-mail if you find mistakes or errors.

If the author isn't here and you know a publisher of one of their books, you might try the publisher's site. A very good site for SF&F authors is The SF Site. Many of our SF&F Author Pages were obtained from them with their permission.

Abbey, Lynn   From her website "I've been an only child most of my life and filled my world with imaginary friends. I didn't play with them.

She hasn't stopped writing since then.

Ackerman, Forrest J. (1916-2008) He's gone now but he had amassed one of the greatest collections of science fiction, monster movies, and horror fiction.

There was hope at one time of transforming his collection of 300,000 items into a museum. But the plans always fell through, and Ackerman eventually had to sell his trove piecemeal amid mounting bills for health problems and a legal fight. The link is to the Wikipedia article about Forrest J Ackerman.

Archer, Nathan   From the site:" I always liked making up stories, like any kid, but I didn't take it very seriously. In college back in '77 there was this guy who had written a bunch of stuff -- he'd sold some feature articles to some diddly-squat small-town newspaper and a gag short story to some obscure magazine for a few dollars, and had written a couple of dozen unsold stories and even an unsold novel. I looked at all that work and what he'd gotten out of it and decided on a nice safe government job. I wrote a bunch of stuff just for fun, but didn't try to sell anything." Well a lot of that has changed since 1993 with Star Trek: Deep Space Nine #10: Valhalla

Yalow, Ben  Although his page was under construction the last we checked (Dec 2003), there are still several interesting facts at the site about this editor and SF fan.

Yarbro, Chelsea Quinn   "Fans of this prolific writer of historical horror novels will delight in (Out of the House of Life). Yarbro's knowledge of history and fastidious attention to detail combine to form a fascinating backdrop for these supernatural intrigues ... Whether you follow horror or if it's historical fiction you love, Yarbro's work will come as a welcome discovery." -- R*A*V*E Reviews

Yolen , Jane  Proud Grandmother, writer of over 200 books, Past President of the Science Fiction Writers of America, and on the Board of Directors for the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators for over 25 years, Jane Yolen lives a very active life.

York, J. Steven   Science Fiction Author, Marvel Comic Novelist, Computer Game Writer, Part-time Rocket Scientist, Certified Eclectic Individual.

Youatt, Kat  The last time we checked (Dec 2003) we had no page for Kat Youatt. I also haven't been able to find much information about the author.

Zachary, Hugh   Hugh Zachary (or Zach Hughes as he know by Science Fiction fans)start his page with "A Brief Summary Of The Life And Times of the most published and underpaid and unknown writer in the U.S.". He goes on to say "One Day In Hell, my first published book, wasn't a bad book. It was an awful book. The scenes inspired by grapefruit brandy were probably the best part of it." An interesting person.

Zammana, Lytchcov   When last checked (Dec, 2003) we had no page for Lytchcov Zammana

Zelazny, Roger  Roger Zelazny died on June 14, 1995, but his novels and short stories are still in print and he has many fan sites of which this is just one. He has at least 47 stories which received nomination for either the Nebula, Hugo, or Locus awards (and sometimes all three). He won 3 Nebulas, 6 Hugos, and 2 Locus awards. My favorite? It varies, depending on the mood I'm in. I'm a re-reader and can find a Zelazny story to fit any mood. Lets start with Lord of Light, move on to Jack of Shadows, then Isle of the Dead and Dilvish, the Damned. Oh, and don't forget the Amber stories. Too many really to list. He is missed, not only for his stories but as the great person that he was.
