Ellen Datlow

I've been an editor for over thirty years, first in book publishing, but mostly editing short stories for OMNI Magazine and webzine, EVENT HORIZON, a webzine, and SCIFICTION, the fiction area of SCIFI.COM. I currently acquire and edit short fiction for Tor.com and I edit original and reprint anthologies. Born and bred New Yorker, although I travel a lot.
