On the Road with Gardner Dozois

Travel Narratives 1995–2000

This text relates to the 1st edition • Paperback (Trade)

by Gardner Dozois

On the Road with Gardner Dozois: Travel Narratives 1995–2000 offers an inside look at the life and experiences of one of the most important science fiction editors of our time. Gardner Dozois shares his insights and observations of science fiction, fannish tourist travel, and worldclass conventions in this special selection of trip reports when the genre was on the cusp of change. This historical snapshot captures Gardner’s award-winning convention experiences as he and his wife Susan set out on their vacation adventures to various Worldcons, the Nebula Awards, and Westercon in the late 1990s. Each trip report includes a memory of Gardner shared by his friends who knew him best as he shares his own unique view of the world, fandom, and the authors who helped to bring science fiction and its conventions into the Twenty-First Century.
“Gardner writes far and away the best trip reports in fandom. Gardner’s accounts of his travels remind me of the work of the top best travel writers. He can describe the sights and smells of a foreign land as vividly as Paul Theroux, and he makes his own adventures as funny as P.J. O’Rourke.” — George R.R. Martin

  Jim Burns
Gardner Dozois I’ve loved drawing and painting “weird stuff” since I was a tiny child in Cardiff and in 1972, following a failed attempt at becoming a jet pilot — someone started paying me to do it. So I’m one of those very lucky people whose hobby becomes their career and way of life.
