Sarah Micklem

I was born in Virginia, the second of three children. My parents moved frequently before settling in Rochester, New York. My father was a schoolteacher and a naturalist; my mother worked on issues of peace, justice, and support for families. Both my parents were and still are dedicated activists. I have early memories of marching in Ban the Bomb protests. As a ninth-grader, I helped found a short-lived private school without mandatory classes. This gave me the free time to read three science fiction books a day for an entire winter, and provided a graceful way to drop out of high school. After working in a restaurant and printing plant and trying to write a science fiction novel of my own, I concluded I’d better go to college. I got a General Equivalency Diploma and applied for Princeton University, hoping to work with Professor Gerard K. O’Neill, who had proposed the idea of orbiting space colonies. Princeton accepted me, but my dream of becoming a scientist ran headlong into the brick wall of calculus. I took a year off during college to marry a friend from high school, the poet Cornelius Eady. (Yes, he was already a poet, and we were friends in high school, not sweethearts). After my graduation, we moved to New York City, where I resettled refugees for a non-profit agency. When my husband took a teaching position in Virginia, I found a job there as a graphic designer, and was relieved to have discovered an enjoyable way to make a living. After returning to New York, I spent 14 years at Time Warner designing children’s magazines. In 1996, working with Cornelius and Toi Derricotte, I helped start Cave Canem, a thriving non-profit organization for African American poets that sponsors workshops,...

Julian May

Born in Chicago, Illinois on July 10, 1931, Julian May discovered science fiction pulp magazines at the age of sixteen. She got involved in the world of science fiction fandom, exchanging letters with other fans. She eventually formalized her club as Science Fiction International and became publisher of its fanzine. At a convention she met future husband Ted Dikty (they were married from 1953 until his death in 1991) who would, in later life, serve as her editor and literary agent. May’s first short story, ‘Dune Roller’, was published in 1951. She meanwhile continued her interest in the world of sci-fi fandom, chairing the 10th World Science Fiction Convention in Chicon Illinois. In 1953 her second science fiction short story, ‘Star of Wonder’, was published in Thrilling Wonder Stories magazine. But the need to produce more substantial income led May to largely abandon science fiction writing in favour of a position as science editor for a Chicago encyclopedia publisher. Between 1953 and 1957 she produced roughly seven thousand encyclopedia articles. During this time she also managed to slip in the occasional comic strip (Buck Rogers), technical manual, as well as a catechism (produced jointly with a doctor of theology). In 1957, May and husband Ted Ditky co-founded Publication Associates, a production service for educational publishers. She herself began writing (and publishing) a plethora of juvenile non-fiction works, many of them on science and nature topics, as well as a number of biographies. May used a number of pseudonyms, including Ian Thorne, under which name she later (in the 1970s and ‘80s) created a string of chapter books based on classic monster characters including adaptations of Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man, as well as the more science fiction oriented Godzilla and It Came from Outer...
