Eleanor Arnason:
(11/06/2008) Eleanor Arnason lives in the Twin Cities. She is the author of five novels, including Daughter of the Bear King (1987); A Woman of the Iron People (1990), winner of the Tiptree and Mythopoeic Awards; and Ring of Swords (1993), winner of the Minnesota Book Award; as well as fiction, poetry, and essays in such markets as Asimov's Science Fiction; The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction (F&SF); Orbit; Women of Wonder: The Contemporary Years (Pamela Sargent, ed.), and Monad (Damon Knight, ed.). #30 is the 15th issue of TOTU in which her work appears. She writes, "I should have a chapbook coming out from PM Press, featuring 'Mammoths of the Great Plains,' which is currently my favorite Eleanor Arnason story, plus an essay and an interview. Also, Aqueduct Press plans to bring out Tombs of the Fathers, a short novel set in the Lydia Duluth universe. Other than that, I am finishing a bunch of short stories and sending them to my agent. We will see if they sell."
