Moshe Feder, a proud native New Yorker, began his editorial career while still in college when he worked part time as Assistant Editor for the magazines Amazing and Fantastic. Later, he was a reviewer for Publishers Weekly and SF Chronicle, Assistant Editor of the SF Book Club, Editor in Chief of the Military Book Club, a reviewer for Asimov’s, and an Associate Editor at Tor Books. He has been a judge for the World Fantasy Awards and a member of the Sidewise Awards jury. His first, and so far only, short story appeared in Damon Knight’s Orbit 16 in 1975. He has worked with such authors as Gene Wolfe, Isaac Asimov, Paul Park, Scott Westerfeld, Harlan Ellison, Hal Clement, F. Paul Wilson, Charles Stross, L.E. Modesitt, Jr., Robert J. Sawyer, and Eric Van Lustbader. He’s currently a Consulting Editor for Tor Books where his list includes Dan Wells, Robert Silverberg, Gary K. Wolf, David Gerrold, Phillip Jennings, Michael Haspil, Brandon Sanderson, and Michael Moorcock.
He lives in Flushing, NY, in the house he grew up in, with his cats Destry, Blaise, and Nemo. He'll be happy to explain why you've probably never eaten bagels and lox, even though you think you have.
