JACK DANN has written or edited over seventy books and is the co-editor of the groundbreaking anthology of Australian stories, Dreaming Down-Under, which won the World Fantasy Award in 1999. The sequel, Dreaming Again, has just been published to rave reviews. The influential Australian Bookseller + Publisher wrote “If you read short fiction you’ll want this collection. If you don’t, this is a reason to start.” His anthology, Gathering the Bones, of which he was a co-editor, was shortlisted for the International Horror Guild Award and included in Library Journal’s “Best Genre Fiction of 2003”. His latest co-edited anthology, Wizards: Magical Tales from the Masters of Modern Fantasy, was one of the most talked about and well-reviewed anthologies of 2007 and was short-listed for the Shirley Jackson Award and the World Fantasy Award. He is also a recipient of the Nebula Award, the Australian Aurealis Award (twice), and the Ditmar Award (three times).
