Grania Davis

Grania Davis Grania Davis has lived around a lot.
She has dwelled in a mountain village in Mexico, on a primitive sandbar in Belize, and on a beach in Hawaii. She has taught in Tibetan refugee settlements in India, and worked as a military historian in neon-lit Tokyo.

She has traveled extensively and her travels inspired a series of fantasy novels based on the myths of the orient. The Rainbow Annals is based on Tibetan legends. Moonbird uses Balinese myths. Marco Polo and the Sleeping Beauty written with Avram Davidson (who is himself a legend), is set in China. Her many short stories reflect her sojourns abroad. In 2007 she co-edited an anthology of Japanese SFF in translation Speculative Japan to honor the first Japanese Worldcon.

She was married to Avram Davidson, and collaborated with him on short stories and novels, and a son. Since Avram Davidson's passing in 1993, she has worked on publishing his immortal works.

The posthumous Davidson/Davis collaboration "The Boss in the Wall" was nominated for the Nebula Award. The story collection which she co-edited, The Avram Davidson Treasury was nominated for the World Fantasy Award and the British Fantasy Award, and won the Locus Award.

She also received the coveted Emperor Norton Award, given by the bay area SFF community.

After the passing of her husband, Dr. Stephen Davis, she has settled down with her cats and family in the San Francisco Bay area.
