Outside the office, Patrick is the editor of STARLIGHT, an original SF anthology series being published by Tor; the first volume appeared last September and the next one will appear in 1998. Teresa is, of course, the author of the Hugo-nominated essay collection Making Book (1994).
The Nielsen Haydens have been active fans since the mid-1970s, and did many of the standard fan things: published fanzines, joined too many apas, worked on a Worldcon committee, ran for (and won) TAFF, burned out somewhat, and went pro. Their best-remembered fanzine is probably Izzard (nine issues, 1982-87). Patrick says: "In a very real sense our professional activity is merely (to paraphrase Clausewitz) the continuation of fanac by other means."
