Early Life[edit]

There's virtually no information on his life before becoming an author here. It'd be a nice thing to have. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:02, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Needs updating - badly![edit]

I came here while reading Finch in order to better understand the setting, etc. What I found was that this article is badly out of date. I made the one change I knew -- Finch was no longer an upcoming book and it was nominated for the Nebula -- but am sure that there's a lot more that's out of date. Can someone who knows more do some work on this article? --Fredrik Coulter (talk) 13:42, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Template {{update}} may be worthwhile. --P64 (talk) 20:54, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

Potential COI Disclosure[edit]

I am acquainted with Mr. and Ms. Vandermeer. As always, my edits will be referenced to reliable sources and I am open to discussing any concerns. Holzman-Tweed (talk) 14:43, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Do you know anything about Jeff VanderMeer's contribution to Songs of the Dying Earth? --one of two among 22 contributions to that collection in honor of Jack Vance that is catalogued by ISFDB as a contribution to Vance's Dying Earth series. See the next section and its cross-refs. --P64 (talk) 20:54, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

Wizard Sarnod missing[edit]

(quote from Songs of the Dying Earth) ^ ISFDB catalogs two of the stories as contributions to the Dying Earth series: VanderMeer, "The Final Quest of the Wizard Sarnod", and Shepard, "Sylgarmo's Proclamation".[2]

A longer version of the Jeff VanderMeer story was published as a chapbook in 500 signed and numbered copies, The Three Quests of the Wizard Sarnod (WSFA Press, 2010).[3] The occasion was Ann and Jeff VanderMeer's appearance at 2010 Capclave as featured guests.
