Teresa Nielsen Hayden (born March 21, 1956) is an American science fiction editor, fanzine writer, essayist, and workshop instructor.[1] She is a consulting editor for Tor Books.[1][2] She has also worked for Federated Media Publishing, where in 2007 she revived the comment section for the blog Boing Boing.[3] Nielsen Hayden has been nominated for Hugo Awards five times.[4][5][6][7]

Born Teresa Nielsen, she grew up in a Mormon household in Mesa, Arizona, but was excommunicated from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1980 for her support of the Equal Rights Amendment.[8] In her youth, she served as a page in the Arizona House of Representatives.[9] She appended Hayden to her name upon marrying the former Patrick Hayden in 1979; he also took her name, becoming Patrick Nielsen Hayden. The two of them were active members of science fiction fandom and collaborated on various fanzines, including the Hugo-nominated Izzard.[4]

In 1985, she and her husband were TransAtlantic Fan Fund delegates to Europe for Eastercon. Over the next few years, the Nielsen Haydens published at least three TAFF trip reports.[10] From 1985 to 1989, she served on the editorial board of The Little Magazine, a poetry magazine.[11]

She is a former managing editor and, now, consulting editor at Tor Books.[1][2][11] In 1994, a collection of her essays, Making Book (ISBN 0-915368-55-2), was published by NESFA Press. It is now in its third printing. The second printing is the preferred edition.[12]

She is also one of the regular instructors for the writing workshop Viable Paradise.[1]

Nielsen Hayden is well known for her weblog, Making Light, where she writes about subjects such as animal hoarding, publishing scams, astroturfing,[13] and global political events. She is the first recorded Internet editor to practice disemvoweling of the entire text of offensive posts; the term itself was coined in a Making Light post by Arthur Hlavaty.[14] She was the first lead comments moderator at the popular blog Boing Boing when it reopened its comments feature in 2007. In June 2008, a controversy on Boing Boing concerning the "unpublication" of all articles that mention Sex-Columnist Violet Blue generated criticism of some of her moderation techniques, including disemvowelment.[15][16][17]

Medical conditions[edit]

Nielsen Hayden has narcolepsy,[18] for which she had been taking Cylert until the Food and Drug Administration withdrew the drug from the marketplace.[19][20][21][22] In September 2008 she had what appeared to be a heart attack; paramedics were summoned immediately, and she made a full recovery.[23]
