Robert Reed

Robert Reed was born in Omaha in 1956, and received a degree in Biology from Nebraska Wesleyan University in 1987. He first burst onto the science fiction scene by becoming the Gold Prize winner of the 2nd annual L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future competition (1986), and has held a prominent place in science fiction publishing ever since.

Although he has had eleven novels published (see list below), he is probably best known for his many short stories, novelettes and novellas. He has had over 200 shorter works published, and has been a finalist for the Hugo Award eight times, the Nebula Award twice, the World Fantasy Award once, the John W. Campbell Award twice and the Theodore Sturgeon Award nine times. Twenty-three of his shorter works have been compiled in his two short story collections to date, also listed below. Stories by Reed regularly show up in genre short-fiction markets such as The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, and Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine, and his stories are frequently reprinted in the various annual “Year’s Best SF” anthologies as well.

Robert Reed has appeared in the John H. Ames Reading Series three times (1993, 1999 and 2006), recordings of which are available for check out and viewing.
