Capclave 2010 Guest of Honor: Ann VanderMeer

Ann VanderMeerI thought posting a bit about Ann VanderMeer would help Capclave and WSFA members get to know another of our upcoming Guests of Honor a bit better. Of course, I googled much and gleaned a bit so I’m pulling in info from various sources — adding links along the way..

Ann VanderMeer is a publisher and editor, and the second woman editor of the Weird Tales. She is also the founder of Buzzcity Press.

Her work as Fiction Editor of Weird Tales won a Hugo Award. Work from her press and related periodicals has won the British Fantasy Award, the International Rhysling Award, and appeared in several year’s best anthologies. Ann was also the founder of The Silver Web magazine, a periodical devoted to experimental and avant-garde fantasy literature. The Best of the Silver Web was published by Prime Books.

In 2009, Weird Tales, edited by Ann VanderMeer and Stephen H. Segal, won a Hugo Award for Best Semiprozine. Though some of its individual contributors have been honored with Hugos, Nebula Awards, and even one Pulitzer Prize, the magazine itself had never before even been nominated for a Hugo. It has also been nominated for a 2009 World Fantasy Award in the category “Special Award – Professional”.
