Carolyn Ives Gilman
Carolyn Ives Gilman has been publishing science fiction and fantasy for almost twenty years. Her first novel, Halfway Human, published by Avon/Eos in 1998, was called “one of the most compelling explorations of gender and power in recent SF” by Locus magazine. Her short fiction has appeared in magazines and anthologies such as F&SF, Bending the Landscape, The Year’s Best Science Fiction, Realms of Fantasy, The Best From Fantasy & Science Fiction, Interzone, Universe, Full Spectrum, and others. Her fiction has been translated into Italian, Russian, German, Czech and Romanian. In 1992 she was a finalist for the Nebula Award for her novella, “The Honeycrafters.”
She is also a professional museologist and historian, specializing in North American history, particularly frontier and American Indian history. Her nonfiction books—as Carolyn Gilman—include Where Two Worlds Meet: The Great Lakes Fur Trade (1982), The Way to Independence: Memories of a Hidatsa Indian Family, 1840-1920 (with Mary Jane Schneider), and Lewis and Clark: Across the Divide. She served as exhibition curator for the Missouri Historical Society’s Lewis and Clark exhibition. She currently serves as senior exhibits developer at the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC.
