Eleanor Arnason is a published American author of fiction known for her science fiction books and her short stories.

She was born on December 28, 1942 in Manhattan. She got her career started early when her first published story was featured in New Worlds in 1973. It is titled “A Clear Day in the Motor City”.

The author grew up in various cities around the world, from Paris to London, Chicago, New York, Washington D.C., St. Paul, Minneapolis, and Honolulu. Today the author resides in Minnesota.

She attended Swarthmore College where she would graduate with her BA in art history. She went to the University of Minnesota to do grad work before she stopped and dropped out so she could learn more about life outside of colleges and art museums. Amason was residing in the inner city of Detroit when she made her first professional sale.

Since then she has published several of her novels and over forty short stories and short fiction works. Her novel A Woman of the Iron People got her the James Tiptree Jr. Award. It also received the adult fantasy Mythopoeic Society Award. She also won a Minnesota Book Award for her fifth novel, a 1995 release titled Ring of Swords.

The author made the decision to pay extra attention to her work writing short fiction. A short story by the author called “Dapple” was a finalist for the Sturgeon Award and won the Gaylactic Spectrum Award for LGBT science fiction. She has also written several more works of short fiction that have been finalists for the Hugo Award, the Nebula Award, and the World Fantasy Award. Her novella Potter of Bones earned her the nomination for two Nebula Awards in 2003. Her novella Stellar Harvest won her the HOMer Award.

She is known for having work that often focuses on conflict and cultural change. This is all from the point of view of characters that choose not to abide by the rules of their society. It is a unique anthropological view that has caused many to compare her works to those of author Ursula K. Le Guin.

The author was the guest of honor in 2004 at Wiscon.

She was born to her parents, Elizabeth Hickcox Yard Amason and H. Harvard Amason. Her father was born in Canada and had Icelandic roots. Her father was an art historian and served as the Walker Art Center’s director in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Her mother worked as a social worker and had spent her time growing up in a western Chinese missionary community center.

The author is also the niece of Molly Yard, a noted American feminist. Both of her grandparents on her mother’s side were missionaries of the Methodist variety. This topic of being Methodist would come into the author’s writing, especially in her novel Ring of Swords.

For eleven years, the author resided along with her parents in a building next to the Walker Art Center known as Idea House #2, which was designed to be a futuristic dwelling. Many times Eleanor would credit growing up in this house and continually being around avant-garde artists as well as a mother who was a feminist and a socialist to inspiring her to think about the future and then science fiction. Before living here, her family went all over the world.

Upon leaving graduate school, Eleanor worked as an office clerk in the city of Brooklyn and then later Detroit. Spending some time in these places that were so typically blue-collar and had much diversity helped give her an idea about class consciousness and conflict as well as revolution, all which filtered into her writing.

It was 1974 that she moved back to the Minneapolis and Saint Paul area. She obtained jobs in offices, warehouses, working in an art museum, and later working with different small nonprofits that were devoted to varied topics that included justice, peace, history, and art. Eleanor decided to retire in 2009 and writes on a full time basis now.

Her writing focuses on a variety of topics, from social justice to peace to feminism and even the union movement. She believes that racism and all types of prejudice are wrong and should be opposed. She was called a political radical by City Pages. It was due to her growing up in an age of second wave feminism that helped make her aware of sexuality and gender and this comes through in her work, particularly in her Hwarhath stories, where gender roles and reproductive rights are also included. There she wanted to come up with a society where the tables are turned and homosexual love is considered normal and heterosexual love is seen as abnormal.

The McCarthy period had a profound impact on her life, especially since kids were taught (often fruitless) methods of what to do when faced with nuclear annihilation. She became part of the Student Peace Union and whilst the Cuban Missile Crisis was going on attended various demonstrations. Her Ring of Swords novel shows building peace after a long war, something that aligns with the author’s peace beliefs.

She went to the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in 1963 along with her mother. This experience and the impact of it would be recorded in “Big Brown Mama and Brer Rabbit” where Brer changes into an African-American man alive in the twentieth century. She has also had diverse characters in many of her stories, including a female Chinese protagonist in A Woman of the Iron People and a female Hispanic protagonist in Ring of Swords. Her stories of Lydia Duluth also have many characters of other races. Although in that story, the darker skin offers up the best defense against radiation from the stars.

She has been an activist outside of writing and has even worked in New York in a campaign office and moving supplies in Kentucky for striking coal miners. She is also an official member of the National Writers Union.

Eleanor Amason is the creator and author of the Hwarhath series. This series got started with Ring of Swords. The series is continued with Hwarhath Stories: Transgressive Tales by Aliens.

In Ring of Swords, Earth has been dealing with being on the edge of war with an alien race for fifty years. The Hwarhath aliens are a fascinating race. Anna Perez is a biologist that finds out the truth. The aliens have divided up their society by gender, so that the strong and war-ready males do not hurt the women and children.

The aliens view human beings as being a barbaric race that do not have honor. In their eyes, humans deserve to be eliminated. What will happen? Read this book to find out!

Hwarhath Stories: Transgressive Tales by Aliens is the second novel in this series. This is a book that is said to be written by the hwarhath themselves after they have contacted humans.

Their stories have been collected by humans in the anthropology field and are being displayed for the first time. If you loved Ring of Swords, check out this unique novel for yourself and enjoy every word!
