Alice K.Turner was for more than twenty years the fiction editor of Playboy and remains a contributing editor, overseeing the annual College Fiction Contest for students (genre fiction is welcome). She has edited a number of anthologies of work from the magazine, most recently Playboy's College Fiction, out this year. She is the editor, with Michael Andre-Driussi, of Snake's-hands (Wildside Press/Cosmos Books, 2003), a collection of critical essays on the work of John Crowley; a second edition of this is being prepared, and we are looking for material. She is also the author of The History of Hell (Harcourt, 1993).
