Jenn Northington

Director, Editorial Operations

Jenn Northington has worked in the publishing industry wearing various hats since 2004, including bookseller and events director, and is currently Director of Editorial Operations at Riot New Media Group. You can hear her on the SFF Yeah! podcast nerding out about sci-fi and fantasy. When she’s not working, she’s most likely gardening, running, or (obviously) reading. Find her on Tumblr at jennIRL and Instagram at iamjennIRL.

Ursula K. Le Guin, Grand Dame of science fiction and fantasy, has passed away at the age of 88. She was the winner of numerous awards including several Hugos, Nebulas, and the World Fantasy Award; she was also a wonderfully cranky, prolific blogger. As a lifelong reader, I’ll be raising a glass tonight (and spilling a few tears) in her honor.

Get more info on her amazing career and work in the New York Times obituary.
