Update: On 25 January 2010, Ann was promoted to Editor in Chief of Weird Tales
Note: The following was shamlessly stolen from Ann's Wikipedia Entry:
Ann VanderMeer (née Kennedy) is an American publisher and editor, and the second woman editor of the venerable horror magazine
Weird Tales. She is 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.
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 was also nominated for a World Fantasy Award in 2009.
