Happy Birthday, Pamela Sargent!

20 March 2017

An important voice in feminist SF, Pamela Sargent came to prominence as an editor with the ‘Women of Wonder’ SF anthologies, beginning in the mid-seventies, and she has continued to edit works of genre interest. An award-winning short fiction and novel writer, her works include the ‘Earthminds’, ‘Seed’ and ‘Venus’ trilogies, all available as SF Gateway eBooks.

Last summer, we posted a guide to Pamela Sargent’s Gateway Essentials titles . . .

. . . and today, we wish Pamela a very Happy Birthday – and it’s a birthday we’re sure will be made all the more special by the news that Pamela’s acclaimed The Shore of Women has been optioned for development as a TV series by Super Deluxe Films, a division of Turner Broadcasting. That’s all we know for now, but we’ll be sure to update you with more details as we learn them. Exciting stuff!

You can find more of Pamela Sargent’s books via her Author page on the Gateway website, and read more about her in her entry in The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction.


Happy Birthday, Pamela – and congratulations!
