Greer Gilman was a Guest of Honor at Readercon 20. Her Cloud & Ashes: Three Winter's Tales (Small Beer Press, 2009) won a 2010 Otherwise (Tiptree) Award and was a Mythopoeic finalist. "Jack Daw's Pack," the first of the tales, was a 2000 Nebula novelette finalist; the second, "A Crowd of Bone," a 2003 World Fantasy novella winner. Unleaving completed the triptych. Her first mythic fantasy, Moonwise (Roc, 1991; Prime, 2005), itself a Tiptree and Mythopoeic finalist and a Crawford winner, was nominated by David G. Hartwell as the single novel most emblematic of Readercon. A third Cloudish novel is in progress. Her metaphysical mysteries set in the theatre world of 1610s London, the Shirley Jackson Award-winning  Cry Murder! In a Small Voice (Small Beer Press, 2013) and Exit, Pursued by a Bear (Small Beer Press, 2014), featured in a Grolier Club exhibition (2018) on the history of fantastic literature. Her works are cited in the OED. "Down the Wall," a post-apocalyptic Cloudish story, first appeared in Salon Fantastique (Thunder's Mouth Press, 2006). "Hieros Gamos" came out in An Alphabet of Embers (Stone Bird Press, 2016). Her critical works include: her prefaces to Sylvia Townsend Warner's Kingdoms of Elfin and Of Cats and Elfins (Handheld Press, 2018; 2020); her chapter on "The Languages of the Fantastic" in the Hugo finalist Cambridge Companion to Fantasy Literature (Cambridge University Press, 2012); and her essay, "Girl, Implicated," in the Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts 19.2 (2008).
