Kramer, Edward E

Tagged: Author | Editor | Fan

(1961-    ) US editor, author and fan, in the last capacity a co-founder and former part owner of the now very large Convention Dragon Con (formerly styled Dragon*Con) held since 1987 in Atlanta, Georgia. He has edited, usually in collaboration, a number of genre Anthologies beginning with Confederacy of the Dead (anth 1993) with Richard Gilliam and Martin H Greenberg; he began to publish stories of genre interest with "The Power In Penance" in his own Grails: Visitations of the Night (anth 1994) edited with Richard Gilliam and Martin H Greenberg. The solo-edited Dark Destiny sequence opening with Dark Destiny (1994) inhabits a Shared World where Vampires, Werewolves and other Supernatural Creatures have long manipulated Earth's history from behind the scenes. Kramer's best known edited work is probably The Sandman: Book of Dreams (anth 1996) as Ed Kramer, with Neil Gaiman, assembling original stories set in the universe of Gaiman's Sandman; contributors include Gene Wolfe. The Libertarian SF anthology Free Space (anth 1997) with Brad Linaweaver won a special Prometheus Award in 1998.

A shadow was cast over Kramer's editorial career and reputation in Fandom by his arrest in 2000 on charges of child molestation, to three of which he pleaded guilty in 2013; legal complications still continue. [DRL]
