Judith Moffett began her career writing poetry before turning to SF with an ape-as-human tale, ‘Surviving’, for The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction in June 1986. She gained immediate attention by winning the first Theodore Sturgeon Award in 1987 and her reputation was further enhanced with the publication of her first novel, Pennterra, in the same year. The following year she received the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer.
We recommend Gateway Essentials title, The Ragged World, as the perfect entry point to Judith Moffett’s work. The Ragged World is book one of the Holy Ground trilogy; book two is Time, Like an Ever-Rolling Stream, and book three is The Bird Shaman.
