Michael Swanwick (born November 18, 1950 in Schenectady, New York) is an American science fiction writer, winner of the Hugo, Nebula, World Fantasy Award and others. Graduated from the College of William and Mary, worked at the Information Bureau of the Center for Solar Energy Research. Since 1980 he has been a professional writer. The first two stories of the writer were nominated for the highest fantastic awards and they had to compete in the lists with each other. Over the course of several years, Michael Swanwick gained popularity among readers by publishing one story after another in science fiction magazines, but a certain "barrier" still remained - he could not write a novel in any way. In the end, on the advice of one of his friends, Swanwick took his story "Kiss of the Mummer" as a basis, wrote several more interconnected stories and thus got his debut work in "big form" - the novel "In the Drift ] (1985). He did not become a "bomb", but the writer managed to overcome the psychological barrier. Two years later, Swanwick`s second novel, Vacuum Flowers, was released and was never fully understood or accepted by either cyberpunks or humanists. Meanwhile, according to the writer himself, he did not try to create a work that would be accepted as his own in any of the postmodernist groups. It should be especially noted another, in many ways significant and, perhaps, the most powerful work of the writer - the novel "The Daughter of the Iron Dragon" [Iron Dragon`s Daughter] - either techno, or, as the writer himself calls it "solid" fantasy. This novel was published in Russia by AST back in 1993, but, alas, did not gain much success with Russian readers. This, as well as the commercial failure of two other novels published in our country (Vacuum Flowers and The Path of the Tide), forced Russian publishers to delete the name of the writer from their publishing plans for a long time. It`s a pity ...

In recent years, Swanwick, who has repeatedly admitted that he writes too slowly to meet the generally accepted norms among professional writers, pays more and more attention to short stories and very tiny mini-sketches, while not forgetting about literary work ( a recent example is his 2002 Locus Award-winning book Being Gardner Dozois). Michael Swenwick has co-authored with Gardner Dozois and Jack Dunn on numerous occasions, wrote one of the stories, Dogfight, with William Gibson, and Archaic Planets: Nine Excerpts from the Encyclopedia Galactica with his son, Sean Swanwick. Michael Swanwick also completed two unfinished works by Abram Davidson, known in Russia for the fantasy novel Phoenix and the Mirror. Now the writer lives in Philadelphia, with his wife Marion Porter and son, actively works and does not forget to regularly answer all kinds of questions that visitors to his official website ask him. © Shop of Worlds Michael Swanwick`s official website: www.michaelswanwick.com Awards and Awards: [Asimovs Readers Awards 1989] Asimovs Readers Awards, 1989 // Short Story -> A Midwinter & # 039; s Tale (1988) [Theodore Sturgeon Award 1990] Theodore Sturgeon Award, 1990 // Best SF Story -> The Edge of the World (1989) [Nebula Awards 1991] Nebula Awards, 1991 // Novel -> Stations of the Tide (1991 ) [World Fantasy Award 1996] World Fantasy Award, 1996 // Novella -> Radio Waves (1995) [Hugo Award 1999] Hugo Award, 1999 // Short Story -> The Very Pulse of the Machine (1998) [Asimovs Readers Awards 1999] Asimovs Readers Awards, 1999 // Short Story -> Radiant Doors (1998) [Asimovs Readers Awards 2000] Asimovs Readers Awards, 2000 // Short Story - > Ancient Engines (1999) [Hugo Award 2000] Hugo Award, 2000 // Short Story -> Scherzo with Tyrannosaur (1999) [Locus Award 2001] Locus Award, 2001 // Collection -> Tales Of Old Earth (2000) [Hugo Award 2002] Hugo Award, 2002 // Short Story -> The Dog said Bow-Wow (2001) [Locus Award 2002] Locus Award, 2002 // Nonfiction Book -> Being Gardner Dozois (2001) [Hugo Award 2003] Hugo Award, 2003 // Novellette -> Slow Life / Slow Life (2002) [Asimovs Readers Awards 2004] Asimovs Readers Awards, 2004 // Short Story -> Coyote at the End of History (2003) [Hugo Award 2004] Hugo Award, 2004 // Novellette ) -> Chronology / Legions in Time (2004) Michael Swanwick. Cycles of works of Iron Dradons Daughter of the Iron Dragon / Iron Dragon`s Daughter (1993) The Dragons of Babel (2008) Michael Swenwick. Novels 1985 In the Drift 1987 Vacuum Flowers 1991 Stations of the Tide 1993 Iron Dragon`s Daughter 1997 Jack Faust 2002 Bones of the Earth 2008 The Dragons of Babel Michael Swanwick. Stories and Stories 1980 The Feast of Saint Janis 1980 Ginungagap 1981 Mummer Kiss 1981 Touring // Co-authors: Gardner Dozua, Jack Dunn 1981 Til Human Voices Wake Us 1981 Walden Three 1982 Snow Job 1982 The Man Who Met Picasso 1984 Afternoon at Schrafft`s 1984 When the Music`s Over 1984 Ice Age 1984 Trojan Horse 1984 Marrow Death 1984 Virgin Territory [= "Golden Apples of the Sun"] 1985 The Gods of Mars 1985 Anyone Here from Utah? 1985 The Transmigration of Philip K 1985 Dogfight // Co-authored by William Gibson 1985 The Blind Minotaur 1986 Covenant of Souls 1987 Foresight 1988 The Dragon Line 1988 The Overcoat 1988 A Midwinter`s Tale 1989 The Edge of the World 1989 Snow Angels 1990 UFO 1991 Writing In My Sleep 1991 Griffin`s Egg 1991 Fantasies 1992 The Wireless Folly 1992 In Concert 1993 Picasso Deconstructed: Eleven Still-Lifes 1993 Cold Iron 1994 The Changeling`s Tale 1994 The Mask 1994 Eight Takes On Kindred Themes 1994 Brief Essays 1995 The City of God 1995 Walking Out 1995 Radio Waves 1995 North of Diddy-Wah-Diddy 1996 Growing Up with the Future 1996 The Dead [= Dead] 1996 Ships 1996 They Fell Like Wheat 1996 An Abecedary of the Imagination 1997 Mother Grasshopper 1997 The Hagiography of Saint Dozois 1997 Author Profile 1997 The Wisdom of Old Earth 1998 Microcosmic Dog 1998 The Very P ulse of the Machine 1998 Wild Minds 1998 Midnight Express 1998 Archaic Planets: Nine Excerpts from the Encyclopedia Galactica 1998 Radiant Doors 1998 Ancestral Voices 1998 Vergil Magus: King Without Country // Co-authored by Avram Davidson 1998 Jane Swanwick and the Search for Identity 1999 Great Day Brontosaurus / Riding the Giganotosaur 1999 Scherzo with Tyrannosaur 1999 Green Fire 1999 Ancient Engines 2000 Moon Hounds / Moon Dogs 2000 The Madness of Gordon Van Gelder 2000 Mickelrede, or, The Slayer and the Staff 2000 The Raggle Taggle Gyps -O 2001 Minor Planets: Phoebe 2001 Cigar-Box Faust 2001 Humanity 2.1 2001 The Dog said Bow-Wow 2001 After Science Fiction Died 2002 What Would Bob the Angry Flower Do? 2002 Ubiquitous Computing 2002 A Great Day for Brontosaurs 2002 The Moon-Poet 2002 His Flea Wife 2002 Death and the Housekeeper 2002 Warren Zevon 2002 Five British Dinosaurs 2002 "Hello", said the Stick 2002 Scribble, Scribble, Scribble 2002 One Fine Morning in Spring ...
