Bio: Pamela Sargent has won the Nebula Award, the Locus Award, and has been a finalist for the Hugo Award. She is the author of several highly praised novels, among them Cloned Lives (1976), The Sudden Star (1979), The Golden Space (1982), The Alien Upstairs (1983), and Alien Child (1988). The Shore of Women (1986), one of Sargent’s best-known books, was praised as "a compelling and emotionally involving novel" by Publishers Weekly. The Washington Post Book World has called her "one of the genre's best writers."
Gregory Benford described her novel Venus of Dreams (1986) as "one of the peaks of recent science fiction." Venus of Shadows (1988), the sequel, was called "alive with humanity, moving, and memorable" by Locus. Child of Venus, the third book in the trilogy, was described as “masterful” by Publishers Weekly, and all three novels are available from Fictionwise.
Sargent is also the author of Ruler of the Sky (1993), an epic historical novel about Genghis Khan. Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, author of Reindeer Moon, commented about this novel: "Scholarly without ever seeming pedantic, the book is fascinating from cover to cover and does admirable justice to a man who might very well be called history’s single most important character." Sargent's Climb the Wind : A Novel of Another America was published by HarperPrism in 1999 and was a finalist for the Sidewise Award for Alternate History.
Sargent’s novel Earthseed was reissued by Tor in 2007, along with a sequel, Farseed. The third novel in this trilogy, Seed Seeker, is scheduled for publication in November 2010.
