        Nancy Kress is a celebrated writer of science fiction novels and short stories, as well as science-themed mystery stories. Her science fiction work often explores the implications of modern biological research in near-future settings. Perhaps her most famous set of books, the "Beggars" trilogy, speculates brilliantly on the future consequences of genetic "improvements" in human intelligence on world society. Her recent short story collection, Beaker's Dozen, addresses such issues as cloning and genetic engineering. Ms. Kress is also the "Fiction" columnist for Writer's Digest Magazine, and has published two books on creative writing. She has won two Nebula awards and one Hugo award.
