She was consumed by two passions - her husband and her medical research. Or was it first her work and then her husband
At twenty-eight Anne had made a scientific breakthrough that would be a financial miracle for her employers. But was it safe yet to use the serum on humans Anne found the answer - after her perfect marriage and her courage had been tested by inward conflict and the politics of power.
Kate Wilhelm (1928-2018)
Working name of the US writer Katie Gertrude Meridith Wilhelm Knight, born in Ohio in 1928. She started publishing SF in 1956 with 'The Pint-Sized Genie' for Fantastic, and continued for some time with relatively straightforward genre stories; it was not until the late 1960s that she began to release the mature stories which have made her reputation as one of the 20th century's finest SF writers. She was married to noted author and critic Damon Knight and together they have had a profound influence beyond their writing, through the Milford Science Fiction Writers' Conference and its offshoot, in which she was directly involved, the Clarion Science Fiction Writers' Workshop. She won the Hugo Award for Best Novel with Where Late the Sweet Birds Sang, and has won the Nebula Award three times. Kate Wilhelm died in 2018, aged 89.
