Judith Merril

Judith Merril (1923, New York, New York - 1997, Canada) was an North American science fiction author and anthologist. Merril was a writer from her youth. She published her first stories in the late 1940s. She later devoted much of her time editing science fiction short story anthologies, especially a series of popular "Best of the Year" story anthologies that ran from 1956 to 1966.

In the late 1960s, appalled by what she saw as excessive suppression of anti-war activities by the U.S. government, she moved to Canada. She began an endowment at the Toronto Public Library for the collection of all science fiction published in the English language (the Merril Collection of Science Fiction, Speculation, and Fantasy).
