San Diego Comic Fest 2018 Science Fiction Guest of Honor Nancy Kress


San Diego Comic Fest is proud to welcome Nancy Kress as our 2018 Science Fiction Guest of Honor!

Nancy Kress is the author of thirty-three books, including twenty-six novels, four collections of short stories, and three books on writing. Her work has won science fiction’s highest awards: six Nebulas, two Hugos, a Sturgeon, and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award. Kress’s work has been translated into Swedish, Danish, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Polish, Croatian, Chinese, Lithuanian, Romanian, Japanese, Korean, Hebrew, Russian, and Klingon, none of which she can read. In addition to writing, Kress often teaches at various venues around the country and abroad. Her most recent work, Tomorrow’s Kin (Tor, 2017) is based on her Nebula-winning novella, “Yesterday’s Kin.” It is a novel of a pandemic, aliens who are not what they seem, genetic engineering, and a desperate race to avoid global war.

Kress lives in Seattle with her husband, writer Jack Skillingstead, and Cosette, the world’s most spoiled toy poodle.
