Celia S. Friedman (born January 12, 1957) is an American speculative fiction author who often writes as "C. S. Friedman."[1][2]

As of 2022, she has published fourteen novels, numerous short stories—several of which were included in her 2021 collection, The Dreaming Kind, and a sourcebook for White Wolf's Vampire: The Masquerade role-playing game.

Originally a costume designer, Friedman began her publishing career in 1986. She quit costuming in 1996 to write full-time.[3]

Friedman was nominated for the John W. Campbell award for Best New Writer in 1988 (now called the Astounding Award,[4] and her novel This Alien Shore was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year in 1998.[5] In 2006, she was the author guest of honor at ICON, the oldest and largest science fiction convention in Iowa.[6]

In August 2022, Deadline reported that Bohemia Group, a global management firm, was shopping a potential television series based on The Coldfire Trilogy, which was a finalist for NPR's Science Fiction and Fantasy Vote in 2011.[7][8]
