Jeff Vandermeer (full name - Jeffrey Scott Vandermeer / Jeffrey Scott VanderMeer) - was born in Belfont (Pennsylvania, USA), spent several years in his childhood in Fiji, where his parents worked in the Peace Corps. Then their family returned to the United States, but before that, they traveled for another six months in Asia, Africa and Europe. In an interview with Vandermeer by Nick Gevers for SF Site, Jeff said: “I had an extraordinary childhood. I grew up in the Fiji Islands, in a tropical paradise, balancing asthma and occasional intense allergies and dysfunctional family life. In my opinion, beauty and horror or alienation were intertwined almost from the beginning. One day in Peru, in bed, with an oxygen pillow, very ill, I looked out of our window in a hotel in Cusco, looking straight at the mountainside, and saw two hummingbirds mating on the fly. It is at times like these that you begin to believe in visions. Since then, I have been looking for the unusual - sudden beauty, beauty in the service of freedom - wherever I can, because I believe that in such moments we are closest to God or something spiritual. I believe in fantasy not as a fantasy, but as a kind of hidden reality that existed before our world. " His father is Robert K. Vandermeer. He is a biochemist currently studying fire ants. Jeff`s mother is Penelope Miller. She is an artist and is currently working on her doctorate in 19th century French sculpture in Paris. His sister Elizabeth lives in Scotland and is soon due to receive her PhD in ecology. Jeff studied journalism for three years at the University of Florida at Gainesville, then switched to English language studies with an additional major in Latin American history. Surprisingly, Vandermeer still hasn`t finished his studies. In addition, Jeff attended the Clarion East Workhop at the University of Michigan in 1992, where his fellow students were Dale Bailey, Felicity Savage, Nathan Bollingrad, and Corey Doctorow. By the way, since 2007 he has been teaching himself at the Clarion East Workhop. Vandermeer`s writing lessons were published in the American student magazine Merlin`s Pen. In addition, Jeff has participated in writing conferences such as The Florida Suncoast Writers` Festival and The Seven Hills Writers Conference. In addition to serving on the editorial board of Fantastic Metropolis, he was a founding member of the Council for Literature of the Fantastic at the University of Rhode Island. In 1998, he was chairman of the jury for the Philip Dick Prize. In 2003, Jeff Vandermeer married Anne Kennedy, editor of the small-circulation independent publishing house Buzzcity Press and Silver Web magazine. Currently, Vandermeer lives with his wife in Tallahassee, Florida. Vandermeer himself has headed The Ministry of Whimsy Press for a decade and a half (for which he and Tom Winstead were nominated for the 1998 World Fantasy Award). Jeff also works for Infinity Software Development, where he writes the language component for online tests that emulate government tests for grades three through ten. Vandermeer prides itself on its extensive library, especially the collection of first editions by Angela Carter, Edward Whitmore and Frederick Prokosch. Vandermeer`s stories began to appear in the late 1980s. They have appeared in a wide variety of publications, from Freezer Burn Magazine to Asimov`s Science Fiction, and have appeared in several anthologies, including the Best of the Year anthology. The writer has published several collections of small prose, among which the collection of short stories and short stories "The City of Saints and Madmen", united by the place of action - the fictional city of Ambra, is worth highlighting. The collection gained cult status, marking the beginning of the mass popularity of the avant-garde literary movement "new weird", combining elements of surreal and transgressive horror based on realistic, complex models of the world, with an admixture of prose influences from the forerunners of the "new wave" movement (such as Mervyn Peak) and Franco -English decadence. The novels Underground Veniss (2003) and Shriek: An Afterword (2006) are firmly on the bestseller lists for Amazon.com, The Austin Chronicle, The San Francisco Chronicle, and Publishers Weekly. ... Jeff`s books and stories are published in over twenty languages. Recently, Vandermeer has begun experimenting with other forms of media, resulting in a film based on the novel Shriek: An Afterword and the animation A New Face in Hell. The author is currently writing a noir thriller "Finch", which aims to continue the cycle "Ambergris". © Grumble Reviews Official Website: www.jeffvandermeer.com Awards & Awards: [World Fantasy Award 2000] World Fantasy Award, 2000 // The Transformation of Martin Lake (1999)
