Ron Drummond’s "The First Woman on Mars", was published in English and Chinese in May 2013 as the lead article in issue 13 of the Taiwan-based international art journal White Fungus.
In 2009, Samuel R. Delany privately published a 30-copy edition of Drummond's collection of essays and occasional writings, Shapes of Redemption, which included his critical fiction on the novels of Steve Erickson, "The Frequency of Liberation," first published in SF Eye in 1993, along with essays and meditations on the music of Carter Scholz, Antonín Rejcha, Hector Berlioz, and Jethro Tull. Drummond's uncollected music writings include an in-depth profile of composer Pauline Oliveros, an interview with jazz guitar legend Pat Martino, programmatic essays for Northwest Sinfonietta, and a long essay for Classical Net on the Tokyo String Quartet. Drummond's short story, "Troll," appeared in the CalArts literary journal Black Clock, and his long anecdotal essay about Joanna Russ was published in the December 2011 issue of The New York Review of Science Fiction; a new short story, "Submersible Moonphase," will be published in Vol. 3 of Encyclomedia’s Encyclopedia in Spring 2014.
Ron Drummond has edited fourteen of Samuel R. Delany's forty books and six of John Crowley's thirteen. His small press Incunabula has brought out fine-press editions of Delany's They Fly at çiron and Atlantis: Three Tales and Crowley's Antiquities: Seven Stories (a 1994 World Fantasy Award finalist), with the long-awaited new edition of Little, Big nearing completion. As a designer, Drummond created a 9/11 memorial, A Garden Stepping into the Sky (2002-3), and submitted it to the official international design competition for the WTC memorial. The design was the subject of a documentary film by Gregg Lachow, was featured on CNN.com, and drew praise from architecture critic Herbert Muschamp. Drummond is also the co-designer with John D. Berry of the new edition of Little, Big.
A native of Seattle and a 1987 Clarion West graduate, Drummond currently lives on the banks of the Hudson River within shouting distance of the house where Herman Melville wrote Typee and Omoo.
