Kit Reed

Kit Reed moved so often as a kid that she never settled down in one place, and she doesn't know whether that's A Good Thing or not. She's "transgenred" for some of the same reasons. Called "one of our brightest cultural commentators" by Publishers Weekly, Reed has published SF dystopian novels like Enclave and the ALA Alex Award-winning Thinner Than Thou, both from Tor, as well as comic novels and what Brian Aldiss calls "psychological fiction" for the broader market, as well as psychothrillers (as Kit Craig). Her dozens of short stories appear in periodicals ranging from Asimov's SF, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction and New Worlds to The Kenyon Review, The Yale Review and are anthologized in, among others, The Norton Anthology of Contemporary Fiction. Her 2013 collection The Story Until Now (Wesleyan), drew rave reviews from The New York Times Book Review, The Wall Street Journal and The Times Literary Supplement (London). Tor is publishing her new SF novel, WHERE, in May, 2015, in which the entire population of a small island vanishes overnight.
