Neil Clarke is best known as the editor and publisher of the Hugo and World Fantasy Award-winning Clarkesworld Magazine. Launched in October 2006, the online magazine has been a finalist for the Hugo Award for Best Semiprozine four times (winning three times), the World Fantasy Award four times (winning once), and the British Fantasy Award once (winning once). Neil is also a six-time finalist for the Hugo Award for Best Editor-Short Form. In the nearly twelve years that Clarkesworld Magazine has been around, numerous stories that Neil has published have gone on to win or have been nominated for the Hugo, Nebula, World Fantasy, Sturgeon, Locus, BSFA, Shirley Jackson, WSFA Small Press and Stoker Awards. In 2012, Neil suffered a near-fatal heart attack while attending Readercon in Burlington, MA. The damage sustained in this incident later required that he undergo surgery for the implantation of a defibrillator. These events inspired both Upgraded, his 2014 cyborg anthology and his 2017 jump from his day job to become a full-time editor. Additionally, Neil began editing Forever in 2015—a digital-only, reprint science fiction magazine. His career has since included helming The SFWA Bulletin (a non-fiction periodical published by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America) and he has edited both original and reprint anthologies. Titles include: Upgraded, Galactic Empires, Touchable Unreality, More Human than Human, and the Best Science Fiction of the Year series for Night Shade Books. His next anthology, The Final Frontier, will be published in July, and followed by Not One of Us in November.
