Gillian Polack

Dr Gillian Polack is a very fannish kind of writer and historian. Two of her novels (Ms Cellophane/Life through Cellophane and The Wizardry of Jewish Women) and her 2016 research monograph were shortlisted for science fiction awards. She has edited two anthologies (one of which, Baggage, was also shortlisted for a Ditmar). One of her stories actually won an award and four others were listed as recommended reading on international years’ best lists. Gillian was awarded the Best Achievement Ditmar in 2010 and was the GUFF delegate to Loncon.

She has a PhD in Creative Writing, one in Medieval History and an array of academic publications. Until recently, she researched how writers think of history and how they use it in their fiction, and now she’s working on how other aspects of culture are encoded into novels.

She belongs to Book View Café and is also a member of The History Girls. She currently lives in Canberra, Australia, which explains almost everything.
