By / November 30, 2016 / no comments

The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America has announced that the next Damon Knight Grand Master will be Jane Yolen.

The Award will be presented at the annual Nebula Awards Ceremony in May 2017.

Jane Yolen is primarily known as a fantasy writer, particularly Young Adult fantasy in which field she has won many awards.

Sister Emily's Lightship and Other StoriesHer science fiction is limited in number, though not in quality. She won a Nebula Award for Best Short Story for “Sister Emily’s Lightship”, and a Nebula for Best Novelette for “Lost Girls”, both of which are included in her collection Sister Emily’s Lightship and Other Stories.

Cards of GriefHer novels include Cards of Grief which tells of an anthropologist who arrives to study a planet where the natives have perfected grief as an art form. The anthropologist finds himself falling in love with one of the natives, where the value of love is not recognised. The fall-out from this clash of emotions ripples out to affect both the observers and the observed.

XanaduAs an editor she produced three volumes of the Xanadu original anthology series, which included both fantasy and science fiction by writers like Ursula K. Le Guin, Lisa Tuttle, Tanith Lee and Mike Resnick.

The Year's Best Science Fiction and Fantasy for Teens: First Annual Collection (Year's Best Science Fiction & Fantasy for Teens)She also edited The Year’s Best Science Fiction and Fantasy for Teens, which deserved to continue for more than just one issue.
