Brian Attebery

Brian Attebery has been investigating fantasy since he discovered the Oz books at age seven, but more systematically since 1980, when his first book, The Fantasy Tradition in American Literature, appeared. He also makes occasional forays into the field of science fiction, having written Decoding Gender in Science Fiction and coedited The Norton Book of Science Fiction with Ursula K. Le Guin and Karen Joy Fowler and Parabolas of Science Fiction with Veronica Hollinger. His most recent book is Stories about Stories: Fantasy and the Remaking of Myth, published by Oxford University Press earlier this year (worth acquiring just for the gorgeous Charles Vess cover). He teaches at Idaho State University and at Hollins University and edits the Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts.
