Reading Outside of the Lines
Genre or Accomplishment
Susan Casper (1947–2017) had a comparatively limited, but very intense writing career. She collaborated with some of the biggest names in the field, attempted truly daring and innovative fiction, and then slipped away from writing as quietly as she'd originally started. As Michael Swanwick says, the reason she stopped writing is a mystery. There came a point when she simply stopped, apparently satisfied with what she had accomplished.
Susan Casper’s was married to the multi-award winning editor and author Gardner Dozois. After he death, he collected and edited her two books, which Fantastic Books is honored to publish.
