Writer Michael Swanwick passed on some sad news today, “It is my sad duty to note the passing of Gardner Dozois today, of an overwhelming systemic infection, at Pennsylvania Hospital . Gardner was the best of friends, the best of editors, and the best of writers. And now he’s gone.”

Gardner Dozois was the founding editor of The Year’s Best Science Fiction anthologies and was editor of Asimov’s Science Fiction magazine from 1984–2004, getting Hugo awards for those works across many years.

He graduated from Salem High School with the Class of 1965. From 1966 to ’69 he served in the Army as a journalist, after which he moved to New York City to work as an editor in the science fiction field. One of his stories had been published by Frederik Pohl in the September 1966 issue of If but his next four appeared in 1970, three in Damon Knight’s anthology series Orbit.

Gardner has also won the Nebula Award for Best Short Story twice.

He was inducted by the Science Fiction Hall of Fame on June 25th 2011.
