Pat is the author of numerous outstanding SF novels, such as Synners and Fools – winners of the two aforementioned Arthur C. Clarke Awards – and has been praised by such luminaries as Neil Gaiman, William Gibson and Bruce Sterling. She is also a tireless champion of the genre, in general, and SF Gateway, in particular. We love Pat – and so do the Hugo-voting SF community, because they’ve just voted to award her the 2013 Hugo Award for Best Novelette for ‘The Girl-Thing Who Went Out for Sushi’.
We couldn’t be more pleased, Pat! Many congratulations on a well-deserved win and a huge Happy Birthday to you from all at Gollancz and the SF Gateway!
