Editor Guest of Honor
A native New Yorker and former biologist, Anne Lesley Groell has been working in science fiction and fantasy publishing for a little over twenty-six years—although she has been a devotee of the genre far longer. She worked for two and a half years at Avon Books, then moved on to Bantam Spectra. In the past twenty-four years, though she has never changed jobs again, she has worked for three different companies under multiple different imprints.
She is currently an Executive Editor for Penguin Random House, and a member of Team Del Rey, where she works with such authors as George R.R. Martin, Terry Brooks, Naomi Novik and Robin Hobb,
