Ann K. Schwader is a Wyoming native now living in Colorado. Her poetry, fiction, and occasional reviews have appeared in the small and pro genre press since the 1980s. She is an active member of both the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) and the Horror Writers Association (HWA), as well as the Science Fiction Poetry Association (SFPA) and the Haiku Society of America. Her fiction and verse have received numerous Honorable Mentions in The Year’s Best Fantasy & Horror.

She is the 2010 winner of the short form Rhysling Award, presented by the SFPA.

Schwader’s most recent collection of science fiction poetry, Wild Hunt of the Stars (Sam’s Dot Publishing) was published in 2010. Her SF / Lovecraftian sonnet sequence, In the Yaddith Time (Mythos Books), appeared in 2007. Her frequently dark poems have also been collected in Werewoman (Nocturnal Publications, 1990), The Worms Remember (Hive Press, 2001), and Architectures of Night (Dark Regions Press, 2003). In company with Keith Allen Daniels and Jerry H. Jenkins, she made up one-third of The Weird Sonneteers (Anamnesis Press, 2000). A selection of her science fiction poetry also appeared in the speculative anthology Time Frames (Rune Press, 1991). She has contributed poems to several Chaosium Press anthologies, including The Nyarlathotep Cycle, The Innsmouth Cycle, and The Book of Eibon, with others forthcoming.

Strange Stars & Alien Shadows, her first collection of Lovecraftian Mythos and other dark tales, was published in the fall of 2003 by Lindisfarne Press. Her short stories have also been anthologized in Rehearsals For Oblivion, Horrors Beyond, Tales Out of Innsmouth, The Darker Side, and elsewhere.

Her fiction and verse have been published in such magazines as Dark Wisdom, Weird Tales, Strange Horizons, Dreams & Nightmares, Mythic Delirium, The Magazine of Speculative Poetry, Tales of the Unanticipated, and Space & Time. Her mainstream haiku have recently appeared in Modern Haiku, bottle rockets, big sky, and Frogpond , as well as online journals Heron’s Nest, roadrunner, and Simply Haiku.

Schwader lives and writes in Westminster, CO with her husband and a very spoiled Pembroke Welsh corgi. In her (limited) spare time, she volunteers at her local branch library.
