Laura Anne Gilman

Laura Anne Gilman started her professional life as an editorial assistant at Penguin-Putnam, and clawed her way to the middle of the ladder as Executive Editor for Roc SF at Penguin US before fleeing the (semi) corporate world of publishing for the freelance life. Her novels have been hailed as “a true American myth” by NPR, and praised for “deft plotting and first-class characters” by Publishers Weekly. She has won the Endeavor Award for THE COLD EYE, and been shortlisted for a Nebula, (another) Endeavor, and a Washington State Book Award. A former New Yorker, she currently lives in Seattle with a cat and many deadlines.
