We’re seeing reports of the death of Grania Davis, widow of Avram Davidson and an editor and short story writer in her own right.
She was born in 1943, and was married to Davidson between 1962 and 1964, though they remained close after that and she was involved in the numerous posthumous collections of his short stories, such as The Avram Davidson Treasury and The Other Nineteenth Century.
She was also co-editor of Speculative Japan: Outstanding Tales of Japanese Science Fiction and Fantasy.
Her own short stories tended to be fantasy, but she did write a number of science fiction stories. Much of her best work can be found in a retrospective collection, Tree of Life, Book of Death: The Treasures of Grania Davis.
