Emma Bull joins NIU SFWA Archives [crossposted from the RBSC blog]

We are deeply pleased to announce that Emma Bull has made an initial deposit of her papers to the SFWA Collection here in Rare Books and Special Collections.
Emma is probably best known for her novel War for the Oaks, which pioneered the urban fantasy subgenre of SF/F. Emma was nominated for the Nebula, the Hugo, and the World Fantasy Awards for her novel Bone Dance. She is also an accomplished musician, having played with the bands Cats Laughing and The Flash Girls.
A member of the Scribblies writing group, Emma is also one of the executive producers and writers for Shadow Unit, an online fiction experience for a television show that never existed.
We are deeply pleased to add Emma’s work  to our collections.

Welcome, Emma!
