Rambo, Cat

Tagged: Author

(1963-    ) US editor, journalist and author, co-editor of Fantasy Magazine from 2007 to 2011; she may have began to publish work of genre interest with "Three Sons" in an unidentified 2001 magazine; this story, along with others, was included in The Surgeon's Tale and Other Stories (coll 2007 chap) with Jeff VanderMeer, each author contributing about half the contents of the volume. Further short fiction has been assembled as Eyes Like Sky and Coal and Moonlight (coll 2009), mostly containing stories set in the City of Tabat in a Ruined Earth venue, some time after a Holocaust caused perhaps primarily by Magic; and Near (coll 2012 dos) and Far (coll 2012 dos), twinned volumes set respectively in the Near Future and the Far Future. A tendency throughout her work to evoke Transcendence is clearer in the latter volume, where Posthuman worlds are touched upon. The Equipoisal facility of her best work in shorter forms, and her ability to conceive (and to publish) stories most effective when they cast a close light on their mates, suggest but do not demand that linked collections may be her ideal mode. She was president of SFWA from 2015 to 2019. [JC]
