Felix Gilman has published four novels, and short fiction in a variety of places including Weird Tales and Tor.com. His recent duology The Half-Made World and The Rise of Ransom City has been described as “a sepia-toned panorama of eccentric and moving Western characters” by Salon. His next book, The Revolutions, is a story of Victorian occultism and spiritual space travel; it comes out in April from Tor.

She has been widely published in such anthologies as the Dark Matter, Mojo: Conjure Stories, and Colonize This!, as well as in Essence, Utne Reader, and Ms. magazines.
