Mildred Clingerman

“Mildred Clingerman stands just a few niches below Shirley Jackson in the fantasists’ Pantheon, for her wit, invention, prose stylings and ability to capture the zeitgeist and transform it into indelible imagery and happenings. Her name should be broadcast just as widely.” – Paul Di Filippo for LOCUS Magazine


“I write SF & fantasy. The book I enjoyed most recently was The Clingerman Files by Mildred Clingerman,
a bunch of short stories by one of the early women in science fiction.” – Chuck Rothman

“Mildred Clingerman is one of the lost women of 1950’s science fiction. A subtle, strange, modern writer, her name and her
evocative stories vanished from histories of the field.” – Eileen Gunn
