Ellen Asher

Ellen Asher edited the Science Fiction Book Club for 34 years 3 months and 20 days, thus achieving her life's ambition of beating John Campbell's record as the person with the longest tenure in the same science fiction job. Now that she has retired, she amuses herself by riding horses, taking ballet classes, traveling (mostly to the UK), and reading only books she actually enjoys. Her hobbies are growing things in flower pots on the window sill and not watching television. In 2001 she was the recipient of NESFA's Skylark Award, of which she is still inordinately proud. In 2007 she received a World Fantasy Award in the category Special Award: Professional for her work with the SFBC. Shortly thereafter she was made a Fellow of NESFA. In 2009 she received a second World Fantasy Award, this time for Lifetime Achievement. And in April 2009, she became, in a minuscule way, a published author with a short essay in Nebula Awards Showcase 2009, edited by Ellen Datlow.
