Death: May 8, 1993.
Comments: Avram Davidson was a science fiction, fantasy, and mystery author and editor. Actually, calling Davidson a "science fiction, fantasy, and mystery author" doesn't really do him justice, as many of his works gleefully crossed genres, mixing and matching almost anything together, and in many cases defying such neat genre label classifications. In his career, Davidson won the Hugo Award, three World Fantasy Awards, and the Edgar award, as well as being nominated for a Nebula Award. In addition to being a prolific fiction writer, Davidson edited Fantasy & Science Fiction from 1962 to 1964.
There is a website dedicated to him named The Avram Davidson Website. His widow Grania Davis has continued to edit and release Davidson's unpublished work since his death.
