Shore Leave, A fan run Science Fiction Convention
Melissa Scott was born and raised in Little Rock, Arkansas, and studied history at Harvard College. She earned her PhD from Brandeis University in the comparative history program with a dissertation titled "The Victory of the Ancients: Tactics, Technology, and the Use of Classical Precedent." She also sold her first novel, The Game Beyond, and quickly became a part-time graduate student and an - almost - full-time writer.
Over the next thirty years, she published more than thirty original novels and a handful of short stories, most with queer themes and characters, as well as authorized tie-in novels for Star Trek: DS9, Star Trek: Voyager, Stargate SG-1, and Stargate Atlantis, the last being the eight-book "virtual season" Legacy series. Most recently she has been commissioned for a story in the Star Wars collection Rise of the Empire.
She won the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer in 1986, and won Lambda Literary Awards for Trouble and Her Friends, Shadow Man, Point of Dreams, (with long-time partner and collaborator, the late Lisa A. Barnett), and Death By Silver, written with Amy Griswold. She has also been shortlisted for the Tiptree Award. She won a Spectrum Award for Shadow Man and again in 2010 for the short story "The Rocky Side of the Sky." Her short story "Finders" (The Other Half of the Sky) was selected for the 2013 Years Best SF.
Her most recent novel, Wind Raker, the fourth in Order of the Air novel, written with Jo Graham, was published at the beginning of 2015, and A Death at the Dionysus Club, a sequel to the Lammy winner Death By Silver and also written with Amy Griswold, was published at the end of 2014.
