Nebula Award winning author Eugie Foster (b.1971) died on September 27 following a battle with cancer. Foster’s work was collected in Returning My Sister’s Face and Other Far Eastern Tales of Whimsy and Malice and she won the 2009 Nebula Award for “Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest; Red Mask, Black Mask, Gentleman, Beast.” She had served as managing editor for Tangent Online and The Fix, both short story review sites, as well as editor of The Daily Dragon, the Dragoncon online newsletter.
After Eugie Foster’s announcement that she hadn’t received royalties for her book with Norilana in three years, Norilana publisher Vera Nazarian announced the reversion of all print rights to all of her authors, noting that if an author wanted to remain with Norilana, she would retain non-exclusive rights for those projects. Nazarian also stated that e-book rights remain with the individual authors and she reiterated her intention to eventually pay all of her authors their full royalties.
The Fix Online editor Eugie Foster has announced that she will be stepping down as editor of the short fiction review site. According to Foster, “I need to devote more time to my writing than helming The Fix Online allows me. So it is with both regret and sadness that I am stepping down as its editor.” She will be replaced by former Assistant Editor Marshall Payne.
