Jeffery Ford

Jeffrey Ford’s stories have appeared in numerous literary and genre publications. His first novel, The Physiognomy, won The World Fantasy Award for Best Novel for 1997 and was a New York Times Notable book of the year. His story “At Reparata,” appeared in The Year’s Best Fantasy & Horror Volume 13, and “The Fantasy Writer’s Assistant” was nominated to the final ballot for the 2001 Nebula Award and Homer Award. Many of these stories have also appeared on the honorable mention lists in The Year’s Best Fantasy & Horror Vols. 13 & 14, Gardner Dozois’ Year’s Best Science Fiction Anthology 2001, and on Locus Magazine’s Year End Recommended Reading list 2000.

Jeffrey says, “I still do most of my writing late at night when everyone is asleep, even though I have to be up by 6:30 AM to take the kids to school. Those dark, quiet hours are a beautiful time of the day. When I get too tired to stay awake, I hear voices in my ears, and very often they speak pieces of stories to me. Sometimes I remember them and write them down. When I write, I have the feeling that the stories and novels already exist somewhere in my head, or out there somewhere in another dimension, and the process of writing them is the process of merely discovering them.”
