Brian Attebery

Brian Attebery has received many honors for his work on science fiction, fantasy, and children’s literature, including the Science Fiction Research Association’s Pilgrim Award for lifetime achievements in scholarship in science fiction and fantasy and the Idaho Humanities Council’s Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Humanities. The anthology he edited with Ursula K. Le Guin, The Norton Book of Science Fiction, is widely used in classrooms and was instrumental in bringing a number of new writers to the attention of scholars. In addition to teaching literature at Idaho State University, he is a reviewer for the Los Angeles Review of Books, editor of the Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts, and principal cellist in the Idaho State Civic Symphony. His most recent books are Decoding Gender in Science Fiction, published by Routledge, Parabolas of Science Fiction, edited with Veronica Hollinger, published by Wesleyan University Press in 2013, and Stories about Stories: Fantasy and the Remaking of Myth, published by Oxford University Press, 2014.
