Being Gardner Dozois by Michael Swamwick

Being Gardner Dozois

by Michael Swanwick and Gardner Dozois

"Being Gardener Dozois... provides fascinating and amusing insights into Dozois's award-winning short fiction"
Publishers Weekly

Michael Swanwick takes an in-depth critical look at the fiction of an author whose editing career has overshadowed his thoughtful, interesting writing.  In this fascinating interview, Dozois reveals his reasonings and obsessions.  Why so many of his stories were collaborations.  Where he wrote his most famous works. How he and Jack Dann and Michael Swanwick became the Fiction Factory — a small group of science fiction writers in the 70s and 80s who primarily sold to the slicks, because the SF magazine editors of the time weren't looking at their type of fiction.  Who really invented The Killer Clowns From Outer Space.  And much more.  Critical commentary, history, biography, Being Gardner Dozois is Michael Swanwick's bravura homage to a friend that goes beyond the norm, and engages the reader in a document that every serious fan of the genre must have.  Cover art by Omar Rayyan.

Being Gardner Dozois has won the 2002 Locus Award for Nonfiction.
