Remembering Kate Wilhelm

“Unlike many of her colleagues, she straddled genres, between futuristic fantasies and enigmatic mystery novels.”

The SF Gateway team is sorry to hear that Kate Wilhelm has passed away. Ms. Wilhelm was an author of many crime and SF novels, winner of multiple Hugo and Nebula awards, a Gateway author, with a title in the Masterworks series – WHERE LATE THE SWEET BIRDS SANG – and someone who had been published by Gollancz in various formats since the late seventies. Together with her husband, author and critic Damon Knight, she has had a profound influence beyond her writing, through the Milford Science Fiction Writers’ Conference and its offshoot, the Clarion Science Fiction Writers’ Workshop. She will be missed.
