Author - Bellet, Annie

Birth: When it happened, it increased the nerd quotient of the world.

Death: Still alive and saying goodnight to celestial bodies.

Comments: Annie Bellet is an American science fiction and fantasy writer most known for her Hugo-nominated (and subsequently withdrawn) story Goodnight Stars. She has written several novels, including the Twenty-Sided Sorceress series, the Lorian Archive trilogy and the Cymru That Was series. A self-described nerd who loves Magic the Gathering and Dungeons & Dragons, it probably comes a no surprise that Bellet holds B.A.'s in English and Medieval Studies.

In 2015, Bellet became embroiled in the Sad Puppy/Rabid Puppy controversy of the Hugo Awards. She was on both slates, and as a result received a nomination for her short story Goodnight Stars. Once she realized what a complete mess the Puppy campaigns had made of the Hugos, and that her story was being used for political reasons, and not for the quality of the work, Bellet elected to withdraw it from the ballot.

Bellet has a website named Annie Bellet: Author, Gamer, Nerd, and can be found on Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook.
