Barbara Hambly


Barbara Hambly
Ranging from fantasy to historical fiction, Barbara Hambly has a masterful way of spinning a story. Her twisty plots involve memorable characters, lavish descriptions, scads of novel words, and interesting devices. Her work spans the Star Wars universe, antebellum New Orleans, and various fantasy worlds, sometimes linked with our own.

Hambly was married for some years to fellow science fiction writer George Alec Effinger before his death in 2002.

Also known as Barbara Hamilton.
