Frazier, Robert

Tagged: Author | Editor

(1951-    ) US editor and author, most active as a poet, whose several published volumes include Peregrine (coll 1978), Perception Barriers (coll 1987), Co-Orbital Moons (coll 1988) and, perhaps most notably, Chronicles of the Mutant Rain Forest (coll 1992 chap) with Bruce Boston and Invisible Machines (coll 1993 chap) with Andrew Joron. He has edited two volumes of sf Poetry, The Rhysling Anthology: Best Science Fiction Poetry of 1982 (anth 1983 chap) (see Rhysling Award) and Burning with a Vision: Poetry of Science and the Fantastic (anth 1984), and is a past editor of Star*Line, the newsletter of the Science Fiction Poetry Association. As an author of fiction, he began relatively late, his first sf story, "Across Those Endless Skies", appearing in In the Field of Fire (anth 1987) edited by Jack Dann and Jeanne Dann. He is perhaps most noted for the extended "The Summer People", his contribution to Nantucket Slayrides (coll 1989), the other stories in the volume being by Lucius Shepard. Frazier wrote the Poetry entry in the second edition of this encyclopedia. [JC]
