Nick Wolven is an American author who writes science fiction short stories.

Education[edit]

Wolven attended the Clarion Workshop in San Diego in 2007.[1]

Career[edit]

Wolven's first professional sale was the short story "An Art, Like Everything Else", published in Asimov's Science Fiction April–May 2008.[2] It received positive reviews among bloggers[3] with one blogger calling it the best story in the issue.[4] It was called "a beautiful story with a tear-jerker ending" by Spiral Galaxy Reviews,[5] while another said it was a "nice idea" but a "saccharine" execution.[6] The story was republished in St Martin's Press's Year's Best Science Fiction of 2009.[7]

Two other stories, "The LoveSling"[8][9][10] and "Senor Hedor"[11] also received positive reactions.

His story, "Angie's Errand", which dealt with gender issues[12] in a post-catastrophe world,[13] was the featured cover story for the December 2009 issue of Asimov's Science Fiction magazine.[14][15][16] Wolven's other stories, "On the Horizon" and "Lost in the Memory Palace, I Found You," were published in the March 2010 and August 2011 issues of Asimov's Science Fiction, respectively.[17]

Personal life[edit]

He currently lives in Bronx, NY, and works at Barnard College Library.[18] As of February 1, 2010, he had stopped updating his official blog.[19]

Wolven is also a part-time drummer.[20][21][22] He lists Stewart Copeland as one of his major influences.[23]
