Female Fantasy Authors, November 2012
With two Hugo Awards for Best Novel to her name, Cherryh built herself a name with the Alliance-Union Universe books, which include the astonishingly good Cyteen. She's no one trick pony, however, as she earned great recognition with her fantasy works as well. Of particular note is her Fortress Series, and the story of Tristen. Starting her career at a time when men dominated the field, which forced her to mask her name, she has forged a remarkable career, penning over 60 novels of great depth and which pose some intriguing questions and always keep readers returning for more.
