Kathleen Ann Goonan is the author of seven science fiction novels. Her sixth, In War Times (Tor, 2007), was a Campbell Memorial winner, was named by the American Library Association as the year's best sf novel, and was selected by Damien Broderick and Paul Di Filippo for Science Fiction: The 101 Best Novels 1985-2010. Her latest, This Shared Dream (Tor, 2011), is also a Campbell finalist and explores a theme first presented in In War Times: how enhanced understanding of the human brain and our increasing connectivity might lead to a world without war.

The Bones of Time (Tor, 1996) was an Arthur C. Clarke finalist.
