About Mike

According to Locus, I am the all-time leading award winner, living or dead, for short fiction. I have won 5 Hugos (from a record 37 nominations), a Nebula, and other major awards in the USA, France, Japan, Spain, Croatia, Catalonia, and Poland. I'm and author of 74 novels, over 260 stories, and 3 screenplays, and the editor of 42 anthologies. My work has been translated into 27 languages. I am currently the editor of the Stellar Guild line of books, and Galaxy's Edge magazine.

Another award nomination!

Just found out that my short story, “The Homecoming”,  is a nominee for the Ignotus Award (Spain’s Hugo). This makes my 8th Ignotus nomination; I’ve won it 3 times. The winner will be announced at a Barcelona convention in early November.
