About Kathryn Cramer


Kathryn Cramer - photo by Ethan CornellI am one of the editors of Hieroglyph: Stories & Visions for a Better Future.

My story “Am I Free to Go?” was recently published on Tor.com. With Edward Cornell, I am currently at work on a film adaptation of my story “You, in Emulation” which was published in Nature in 2011.

I am a writer, critic, and anthologist, and was co-editor of the Year’s Best Fantasy and Year’s Best SF series. I have co-edited approximately 30 anthologies. I was a founding editor of The New York Review of Science Fiction, and have a large number of Hugo nominations in the Semiprozine category to show for it. I won a World Fantasy Award for her anthology The Architecture of Fear (1987). My fiction has been published by Asimov's, Nature and in anthologies.

I grew up in Seattle. I hold a B.A. in Mathematics and a masters degree in American Studies, both from from Columbia University in New York. For five years, I taught writing at Harvard Summer School. More recently I have been a consultant for Wolfram Research, L. W. Currey, an antiquarian bookseller, and for ASU’s Center for Science and the Imagination.  I live in Westport, New York in the Adirondack Park.

We launched Hieroglyph at Google on September 10th.

This collection could be the shot in the arm our imaginations need. It’s an important book, and not just for the fiction. 
Wall Street Journal

[A] group of visionaries have banded together to offer stories that are more utopian, which they hope will contribute to a more positive future…. …The stories still offers plenty of drama, death and destruction, but many have a sort of happy ending.
