Since 2008, Tor.com has been a leading market for science fiction and fantasy short fiction. Several of our stories have been Hugo and Nebula finalists, and Kij Johnson’s “Ponies” won the Nebula in 2011. Since the beginning, much of our fiction has been acquired and edited by Patrick Nielsen Hayden; additionally, Liz Gorinsky began buying and editing for the site in 2010. Now we’re pleased to add Ann VanderMeer as a consulting fiction editor for Tor.com.
Ann VanderMeer is a Hugo-award winning editor and publisher. From 2007-2011 she was the fiction editor of Weird Tales. She has edited the Best American Fantasy series as well as numerous other anthologies including The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities, Steampunk, and Fast Ships, Black Sails. She is the founder of Buzzcity Press. Upon leaving Weird Tales, Ann founded The Weird Fiction Review with her husband Jeff VanderMeer. Recently (along with Jeff VanderMeer) she edited the epic anthology The Weird, a massive survey of weird fiction from across multiple genres. She brings a sharp eye for adventurous fiction to all of her projects, and we look forward to the stories and authors she’ll bring to Tor.com.
