Pat Murphy is probably best-known for her Nebula Award-winning The Falling Woman:
But she is also the author of a well-regarded body of work, going back over forty years to her first published story ‘No Mother Near’, which appeared in the October 1975 issue of Galaxy. Some of Murphy’s best short fiction is collected in Points of Departure, and those interested in exploring her work further would also be well advised to read her post-apocalyptic SF novel, The City, Not Long After.
Happy Birthday, Pat!
