Never to be Forgotten:
Tanith Lee 1947-2015

Tanith Lee, the British writer who published both novels and shorter works in science fiction, fantasy and horror, died on Sunday at the age of 67 after a long illness. Her best received work was in fantasy, her novel Death's Master winning the British Fantasy Award in 1980 and her short story The Gorgon won the World Fantasy Award in 1983. Her story Nunc Dimittis was turned into an episode of the British horror anthology The Hunger in 1999 and she wrote two episodes of the British sci-fi series Blakes 7 in the late 1970s. She wrote lesbian fiction under the pseudonym Esther Garber. In her personal life, she was married to fellow writer John Kaiine from 1992 until she died.

Best wishes to the family and friends of Tanith Lee, from a fan. She is never to be forgotten.

  1. Agreed. I have only read varied stories from her, but they were remarkable enough that the name has stuck with me as one to watch out for. Need to find more of her work....

  2. I think she was one of the most unique voices in Science Fiction -too bad that the publishing houses (in her later years) didn't want to "take a chance" on her writing.

  3. I read "Silver Metal Lover" until the paperback fell apart. Nobody has written anything like that since..
