Award-winning SFF author Vonda N. McIntyre died April 1, 2019. The world lost a force of nature, a brilliant, kind, generous, fiercely talented artist. Friends, colleagues, admirers, fans pay tribute here to a radiant life.
McIntyre’s oeuvre includes Dreamsnake (Hugo & Nebula award winner, 1978), The Moon and the Sun (Nebula 1998; movie, awaiting release), as well as stories, novelizations, and tie-ins — including the Star Trek novel The Entropy Effect. She founded the Clarion West workshop and was a “fairy godmother” to hundreds of students.
A quiet, tireless feminist, Kentucky-born McIntyre moved to Seattle and became a life-long resident, as well as a prolific creator of crochet topology. McIntyre also collaborated with Ursula K. Le Guin, and she was a founding member of the author-owned publishing cooperative, Book View Cafe. McIntyre both shaped and nurtured the SFF community. As her friend Jane Hawkins has said, “we shall not see her like again.”
