Collection Historical Note

Eleanor Atwood Arnason was born in 1942 and is an author of science fiction, both short stories and novels

She is the daughter of Elizabeth Yard Arnason, a social worker raised in China and H. Harvard Arnason, the director of the Walker Art Center in 1951.  For a period of twelve years, starting in 1949 Arnason and her family lived in the Idea House #2, which was a futuristic home designed by the Walker Art Center as a prediction of the future

Arnason's earliest work first appeared in 1972 in New Worlds.  She often writes about cultural conflicts and changes, often from the perspective of a protagonist that refuses to abide by the rules of their own society.  Because of the anthropological bent to her writing, she has been compared to Ursula K. Le Guin

Arnason has won many awards, including the first James Tiptree, Jr. Award, the Mythopoeic Award (for A Woman of the Iron People), the Spectrum Award (for "Dapple") and the HOMer Award (for the novelette Stellar Harvest). In 2000, this last story, Stellar Harvest, was also nominated for a Hugo.  She has also been nominated for two Nebula Awards, both in 2003, for her novella Potter of Bones and her short story, “Knapsack Poems”.  She currently resides in Minnesota.
